Keeping everything simple

I love simplicity.

 "The height of sophistication is simplicity." often attributed to Leonardo Da Vinci. More likely it's from a play by Clare Boothe Luce in 1931.

My favourite is this from Albert Einstein “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.”

I also love the use of one word, one sentence and one page. Learn more.

I equally find it valuable to put meaning to the one word as I have done at the top of the page and see the detail below.

What's would make the word simple meaningful for you?

Sensing what is and truely appreciating it

My quest is to see everything as it is and not over think things or complicate matters. Appreciating the remarkable, the great, the good, as well as the bad and ugly I find is a good way to live.

Insight and Farsight

We’re drowning in information. What we crave is insight.

Hindsight and foresight have their place. Farsight however is the gift we need most. 

Insight and Farsight are the dynamic duo of 21st century leadership.

Moment By Moment

There's only one moment that matters, this one. 

My personal tendency is to live in the future, i.e. I often catch myself imagining what can be, which has its place of course, however it's not where we should invest too much energy. 

Some people live in the past which has many drawbacks because we cannot change the past.

Now is the only time that really matters.

Possibility making itself known

According to quantum physics we live in a world of 'infinite possibility'. The more I accept this and the less I search for what's possible, the more I find that possibility reveals itself in every day situations and conversations.

Living in the service of others

There is evidence in plain sight of many so called world leaders living in the service of themselves. In stark contrast personally I'm inspired by people who live and lead in the service of others.

“Treat people, all of nature, all things, as you desire to be treated.” Confucius 551 - 479 BCE

Empathy, Energy and Enhancing my essence, 
and helping others to do the same

Unearthing, enhancing and magnifying our essence, and helping others to do the same, is one of the great pursuits of 21st century leadership. Learn more.

Become the wise leader you want to be.
