On Simplicity

Posted on:May 14, 2023 at 03:22 PM


To keep your life simple means putting time into the most important things. Pick a few things you really want, and invest heavily into them: a few friends, businesses, and hobbies at one time.

How to choose?

Some people call it focus. I call it simplicity.

“Buffett’s decision to limit his activities to a few kinds and to maximize his attention to them, and to keep doing so for 50 years, was a lollapalooza.”

Simple things are robust because they have slack in the system.

A novice is easily spotted because they do too much. Too many ingredients, too many movements. Too much explanation. A master uses the fewest motions required to fulfill their intention.
