Three Minute Leadership – a Life of Simplicity

“Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away” writes Antoine de St. Exupery.  His words remind us that richness in life is in its simplification.  So often we choose to make it more complicated.  Success, however, is achieved more readily when we rid ourselves of the non-essentials that clutter our life’s purpose.  It is these non-essentials that stand in the way of our progress, as they consume our precious time and energy and keep us from our priorities.


See yourself differently this week – be the the sculptor of your life in every effort you undertake.  Chip away the stones that hide life’s beauties so that you may see things in their simplest terms, returning you to the first principles, until you find the perfection you seek…”when there is nothing left to take away.”  And in this be comforted by the words of Lau Tzu: ” When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.”  May your journey lead you to find your greatest potential: in your accomplishments and in your support to others, that they, too, may find their own special greatness and potential!


Have a beautiful day and a fantastic week!!!
