We take non-violent action on the most important long-range solutions for change versus trying to solve all the short-term problems.
“There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long range risks of comfortable inaction.” - John F. Kennedy (1917 - 1963)
The simplicity value is dedicated to using only what you truly need and focusing on the few most important actions versus all the actions that create the desired result while seeking to create the most harmonious, sustainable, beautiful, and efficient forms of energy exchange that honor and respect human, man-made and environmental resources.
We know TO TAKE ACTION is far better than NOT TO TAKE ACTION because TO TAKE ACTION offers new opportunities, greater innovation and a world that changes only a little bit in the worst case scenario, where as to NOT TAKE ACTION results the same opportunity, limited innovation and a world that improves a little bit in the best case scenario.
We humans live an extremely short time compared to the life of the planet, yet we can make impacts to the planet that can last millions of years, so we must make sure we start to think long-range with our decisions.
We focus on the wisest choices instead of solving all problems because we estimate based on the pareto principle that by focusing on the 20% most important items results in 80% of the results .
I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. — Lao Tzu (571 BCE)
That’s been one of my mantras - focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains. — Steve Jobs (1955 - 2011)
Where there is no vision, there is no hope. — George Washington Carver (1861 - 1943)
