By Dennis W. Lid
If there is one piece of advice that should be followed as the most important lesson in life, it is that of the "KISS"principle. What is the "KISS" principle? We will get to that eventually. Meanwhile,consider how often this principle is violated and what the consequences are of such transgressions. Failure to follow the "KISS" principle results in the unnecessary complication of our lives and the creation of problems that need not exist.
From the day we are born to adulthood, we are bombarded with dos and don'ts, rules and laws, schedules and deadlines and all manner of contradictory strictures of one kind or another. It's exasperating; it's frustrating; it's confusing.
The result is the inability to accomplish anything worthwhile, to know what's right or wrong, what's good or bad, what works and what doesn't. We are left to dwell in a limbo of uncertainty and consigned to a life prone to error and to the commission of mistakes. Much of our time is spent doing mea culpa for these failures. The penance for our sins is sometimes too much to bear. We "blow a fuse," freeze, or in some other manner, we totally malfunction. Our tolerance is limited as human beings; we can take only so much abuse before going over the edge.
So, what's the answer? How do we cope with life as it is? How do we eliminate complexity, contradiction, confusion, frustration, error, mistakes, penance and problems from our lives? The answer is -- we don't. We simply do our best to follow the "KISS" principle, which means: "KEEP IT SIMPLE, STUPID."
