It is an irony that the simple theme itself ‘Simplicity is the Ultimate Sophistication’ can be as complicated. This quote is authored by no other than Leonardo da Vinci, who is an artist, mathematician, inventor and writer. Often enough, we want to achieve a lot of dreams at the same time, because we believe that is what it takes to be successful in career and in life. But due to lack of crystal clear focus on every dream, we may end up doing nothing, achieving very little in life. Hence, we need to prioritise what is important to us, and have our full attention to tackle the tasks. We should strive to simplify our life with less complication so that our life is more fulfilling. The ability to simplify complications is an art.
