Simplicity

John Meada, author of “The Laws of Simplicity,” wrote in his best-selling book, “simplicity is about subtracting the obvious, and adding the meaningful.” With the rapid advancement in technology, expansion of internet connectivity, network and social media platforms, and so on, we now live in a very complex world. Data got so big when machines became involved that it’s hard to know what to do with this information and how to make sense of it. We often find ourselves overwhelmed with information and tasks we don’t necessary need. The goal of this project is to find ways to reduce complexity and enhance the quality of information we absorb on a daily basis, so we can free space for the things that matter. Because less is always more. With 3 words suggest how we could simplify our lives (you may also choose to add an image and a relevent article). Sign up now and let’s keep it simple. We hope you enjoy this fun project.
