Complexity is a term used for something that consists of many different and connected parts. These parts work together to achieve the ultimate purpose. A complicated situation requires you to consider various variables before an optimal decision can be made.
While a non-complex situation is straight forward, easy to understand, and does not have many dependencies outside our control.
The more the level of complexity, the more experience is weighted over fact.
Complexity is situational and may vary by persons involved, time, level of uncertainty, associated risk, and resources required.
Although some situations are inherently complex, overthinking a non-complex situation can gradually complicated the situation. However, prioritising variables with the most impact, and focusing on them, will help limit the associated risk in decision making.
