The Power of Simplicity

Quiet. Solitude. Peace. Purity. Simplicity. Beauty.

Important words. Words that are at the core of each one of us. As persons. As professionals.

And again, as individual persons first.

Whether our role in life is as a business professional, a medical professional, an artist, a teacher, an athlete, or a politician, a government employee, a student … one pervasive need is simplicity.

A very inspiring video of a 7-year-old Texas girl and young gospel singer named Rhema Marvanne singing a simple rendition of Amazing Grace gave me a moment of reflection this morning before I began a busy day, followed by a busy weekend, in a busy month, in a busy life.

The purity of the song and the quiet acoustic presentation of the music itself helped remind me again in my own personal life – and in my business life – to get to the core of the message, get to the baseline, drown out the noise, stay focused, and remain grounded.

Solutions, results, and success will follow.

Quiet, solitude, peace, simplicity, and beauty will follow.

I’ll leave you with that simple message today and with this moving video.

I’d love to hear your thoughts. Please feel free to share your comments in the section below.

This post is dedicated to a new friend, T.C., who works passionately and importantly to find the baseline message amidst the noise and mentors many in pursuit of that goal.

    Right on LMM.

    If we are cluttered with noise, we can’t even do the simplest of tasks. I think of parking a car, for instance. How many times have I turned down the radio to make sure I parallel park well. It seems silly, but the even the trivial tasks in life need simplicity.

    - Perhaps a model for the rest of the clutter that we take on in the rest of our lives…
