2014 SimpleSize series is being re-posted with just the highlights in March ’15
Just the highlights:
Elegant – Little black dress. Elegance in any fabric or style takes it from beach to ball. In math, computing, or science, elegance means a solution that is ingenious and simple. Elegance edits complication.
Edit – Consider daily activities: dress, eat, work, email, shop, exercise, parent, meet, cook, clean, advise, think. No time to read or paint or tinker? Then delete something less important in each 24 hours. Challenge everything. Ask Will this complicate or simplesize my life?
Enough – Say “Enough!” more often. Do settle for less – not more. Time wasted in meetings, unwanted social gatherings, bad leadership.
Economy & Ecosystems – Don’t let consumerism give you crap that creates landfills. Example: automobile leases have the public throwing out their cars every 3 years. Buy what lasts: a car, well-crafted pen or pan, trench coat, digital devices that fit your life, right-sized dwellings that fit edited belongings. Endurance lasts.
Eat. Less but better. (see www.eatingedited.com)
