Simplicity is King

Simplicity is King

By Adam Mundorf

"Our life is frittered away by detail. Simplify, simplify, simplify! I say, let your affairs be as two or three, and not a hundred or a thousand; instead of a million count half a dozen, and keep your accounts on your thumb-nail."

Simplicity is King
Everything in life is simple.  The immature mind craves complexity and constant entertainment while the mature mind realizes simplicity is king.  The answers are simple but somewhere along the way, people assumed that simple meant easy.  Sometimes the simplest solutions are the most difficult to stick to because they aren't attractive or flashy.  They're boring as shit, especially when you delve down into the below topics and realize that no matter how much you go into it, it's still laughably simple.  They also make you go against the grain of modern society which is focused on the here and now.

How do you become wealthy?  Budget -> Save -> Invest
How do you become strong? Lift Weights
How do you lose weight? Eat Less
How do you live a good life? Be Virtuous
How do you live a fulfilling life? Be Intrinsic
How do I keep my joints feeling good? Joint Circles Everyday
How do you do all of the above? Discipline

"It is no measure of health to be well adjust to a profoundly sick society."

Obesity is at all time highs.  Debt is at all time highs.  People are sicker than ever.  People are suffering from mental illnesses more than ever.  People are in more pain than ever.  People are more addicted than ever.  Resist the urge to go with the crowd, there's no honor in listening to those who got it all wrong.  No one ever said it would be easy but it is simple because simplicity is king.
