It is very simple to make things difficult but difficult to simplify them. If you just sit back and think, we are the ones who have complicated things for ourselves and now we try to fight them. We have stopped believing in simple solutions. We don’t appreciate simplicity anymore. If you look at my book, the one thing which is common is the approach and the effort to keep things simple and straight-forward. Because of the recent focus on intellect and its function, we are focusing too much on getting information and too less on wisdom.
This is one skill which is the need of the hour- how to approach life in a simple way. Another trend which I have noticed is how goal-oriented or output-driven we have become. We have stopped appreciating the tourney and are very keen to get to the destination. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way.
