Everything should be made as simple as possible. But not simpler.”


Welcome to the voice in my head, “See it simply.”

In 2006, I was sitting on the rooftop of my house overlooking the city of Phoenix and I had a lot on my mind.  I was a few months into taking a sabbatical from my “career”, and I was committed to simplifying my world through “stuff reduction” and becoming very clear about what I wanted to finally do with my life.

Frustrated not having clear answers, I asked the Universe, “Why is it so hard for us to really do what we love doing?”  No answer.

The next morning, while making my smoothie, a voice kept repeating over and over in my head, “See it simply. See it simply.”  Finally, I broke and asked out loud, “See WHAT simply?”

“Everything.” Was the next thing I heard in my head.

Over the course of the next year, I began seeing the word “simple” and all it’s variations everywhere.  Whatever I wanted to learn about; cooking, money, music, golf, yoga, investing, marketing, on & on.

The crux of the message, was always to keep it simple. On the quotes page you will see how many great thinkers, writers, scientists all tell us to simplify.
