Do you ever struggle to simplify and structure complex ideas when writing books? What steps do you go thru?

Do you ever struggle to simplify and  structure complex ideas when writing books? What steps do you go thru? –@iAspin

Yes, every single thing I write. In my last book, most of my ideas in the second half come from texts I’ve read that were written over 2000 years ago. I totally plagiarize them. But they are texts that have withstood the test of time and I know, when written with modern examples and modern language, that they will still resonate and people will still find Truth in how they can apply these principles in their own lives.

But if I were to just cut and paste them, they wouldn’t be useful at all. So I run them through the filter of what’s happened to me in my own life and how I’ve used these principles and it becomes much more accessible.
