Simplicity is a wonderful and lyrical word! It usually relates to the burden which something puts on someone trying to explain or understand it. Something which is easy to understand or explain is simple, in contrast to something complicated and hard to understand. In some uses, simplicity can imply beauty, purity or clarity. Simplicity can be used in a negative way to denote a something lacking. But here a simple approach means that in future I will try to provide simple advice and tools to help you handle the complex challenges of life and work. Life is complicated enough already. I don’t want to add to your burdens and the next series of posts I plan will be around how to simplify and organise your work life. I hope you will find them useful.
It is worth bearing in mind that the concept of simplicity has been related to truth!
