All problems are not simple problems

Some people think, if a problem appears complex, it is because of the lack of efforts to find solutions. It is true that complexity evolves from simplicity and is context-dependent. The solution of simple problems requires simple logic. Its logical extension is that the solution of complex problems would require complex logic, but this is not always true. In many situations, complex problems may not require any logic. In such situations, the illogical seems logical.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe said, “Everything is simpler than you think and at the same time more complex than you imagine."

The simple fact of life is simplicity. As one simplifies life, the laws of the universe become simpler. But the difficult part is to lead a simple life. We know what our needless wants are. What we don’t know or want to know is to remove the ‘unwanted’ wants to make our lives simpler.

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” is how Leonardo da Vinci summed up the complexity of simplicity.
