A small but vital treatise on reducing the technological-driven clutter, highlighting the meaningful and generating the rhythm of simplicity among the complexity that is inevitable in life.

The Ten Laws are as follows:

  • Law 1: Reduce – The simplest way to achieve simplicity is through thoughtful reduction.
  • Law 2: Organize – Organization makes a system of many appear fewer.
  • Law 3: Time – Savings in time feel like simplicity.
  • Law 4: Learn – Knowledge makes everything simpler.
  • Law 5: Differences – Simplicity and complexity need each other.
  • Law 6: Context – What lies in the periphery of simplicity is definitely not peripheral.
  • Law 7: Emotion – More emotions are better than less.
  • Law 8: Trust – In simplicity we trust.
  • Law 9: Failure – Some things can never be made simple.
  • Law 10: The one – Simplicity is about subtracting the obvious, and adding the meaningful.
Highly recommended.
