TED: Laws of Simplicity


While watching a series of TED talks, I happened on John Maeda’s talk, which led me to The Laws of Simplicity (LOS), which led me to Todoist, which led me to Jerry Seinfeld’s Productivity Secret.

Too many links, but oh, what fun. Here’s some content from Todoist:

The Zen of Todoist

Now is better than later.
Later is better than never.
Organized is better than messy.
Big things are composed by smaller things.
Smaller things are done by action.
Think like a person of action.
Act like a person of thought.
The beginning is half of every action.
The longest journey starts with the first step.
Everything should be made as simple as possible.
But not simpler.
Celebrate any progress.
Don’t wait to get perfect.
Deadlines and stress are a part of life.
