Publisher's Summary

Modern life is complicated, much more so than it used to be. Acclaimed author and social entrepreneur Julia Hobsbawm shows you a simpler way.

The Simplicity Principle challenges the assumption that all things that are complex have to stay that way. It helps keep things as lean, simple and focused as possible.   

Smartphone users experience concentration interruptions every 12 minutes of the day, there are over 250 billion emails sent every 24 hours, and by 2021 the internet will have created more than 3.3 zettabytes of data. Yet complexity doesn't have to dominate, complicate, or clutter our lives. Based on a hexagonal model, this book shows you that it's easy to streamline and simplify both your professional and personal lives with lessons based on the natural world.   

For anyone who feels that life can be too much, The Simplicity Principle will help you break free of the endless choices and complexities that we face in the world today. It's time to gain control of your focus and productivity, and most importantly, keep it simple.

Unique, smart and inspiring

These ideas will stay with me because the author manages to walk her talk by using a simple but thoughtful 6 side framework throughout. A book the world truly needs for the age of ever increasing complexity

Life changing

This truly is a life changing listen. It is beautifully constructed. Julia Hobsbawm’s writing really lands. Undoubtedly the best book I’ve encountered on how to deconstruct and reconstruct your life. I will also be buying the paper copy and keeping it on my desk.
