This quote is a version of “Occam’s razor”. The idea of simplicity appeals to me greatly. My friend Oliver Johnston has wonderfully refreshing views on “less” and fighting the tyranny of “more”. More is pushed by marketeers and retailers and the ensuing greed may be the basis for the recent riots across the UK.
The concept of the razor is to shave away assumptions. We often live with falsely believing “untrue limiting assumptions”. They are what stop us being happer and more successful. It is our minds that limit our natural potential and talents.
So my request is keep everything as simple as you can.
As Albert Einstein said:
“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex.
It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.”
Warm regards for a simple bank holiday weekend
