It is all too easy to make simple things way too complicated. I try to make my life simple but I don't always succeed so I was interested to read this book. It suggests that we lose that simple curiosity which we all have as children. Small children don't stop to consider whether the picture they paint will be perfect - they just paint it and are pleased with the results. In the same way they are interested in anything. Children learn at a far greater rate than at any other time in their lives.

Simple Thinking: How to Remove Complexity From Life and Work, by Richard Gerver

"That's the real trouble of the world, too many people grow up." - Walt Disney

Is it true that young children are more creative than adults in solving problems, or through growing up, we become more and more passive in using our ability to be creative? As we grow up, life become more and more complex - we take in rules, learn protocols, and be part of the systems.

I picked up this book because the title resonated with how I have been feeling - just overwhelmed at all the crap in life today.
Overall a good book, gives you lots to think about, re-frames some concepts you might have heard before. Good balance between author's personal experiences as well as experiences from others.
Almost lost me at the one Trump comment "...politicians like Donald Trump, Nicola Sturgeon and Jeremy Corbyn have enjoyed such success. They appear unrehearsed and, as a result, nat

It's a long time since I've read a self-help book. This one was given to me by a teacher at my school, and I read it to help me understand him a little better.
I agree with a lot of the ideas in the book, and I hope I already do a lot of them, like remembering to play when I can, and focussing on positives whenever possible.
A side benefit to the book was reminding me to go back and read some of Richard Branson's books again - I last read them as a teenager, and now as a manager I think they'd be

This book is clean and written with integrity. I enjoyed the summarised point at the end of each chapter. This book helped me focus on an important piece of study for my career. Reading this book helps get rid of mental chatter that is nice, however it can overshadow clear thinking.
