Evolution: n. a relatively gradual change in a lifeform(s) frequently from simple to complex

Whether you believe that the universe was created from an almost infinitesimal point in space billions of years ago or whether you think the universe and earth was made in 6 days about 6000 years ago, these are both hair brained ideas which will never be proven and will be debated until the end of humanity or religion.

Evolution on the other hand is the idea that everything in the universe is changing, sometimes speedily and sometimes in almost imperceptible ways or very slowly. Evolution of humans, animals, and plants tends to be towards more complexity although the human world has gotten more complex and there is strong evidence that human intelligence is actually on the decline from a biological point of view. There are fewer and fewer geniuses in this world each day so we may in fact assume that the human species and its brains are evolving backwards to greater simplicity.

Whether living organisms are evolving towards greater complexity or simplicity at any moment is a debatable topic but what is not debatable is that the world is undergoing radical change due to human overpopulation and destructive human intervention in the environment.

DNA knowledge and its future manufacture may lead to complex human, animal, and plant organism DNA’s. Complex technology may even lead to smart robots which are more intelligent than most humans. We may in fact in the not too distant future be able to help nature along it’s evolutionary path from simple to complex organisms and technology.

Most of these new organisms will be mutant forms of life and their long duration survival on the face of this precious earth is under a big question mark. Will human intervention with life increase its complexity or ultimately destroy what little healthy complexity has evolved? Human destiny will answer those questions in the long duration. I only regret that I will not live long enough to find out.

Some of us complicate our lives with too many material possessions, too many friends, and too many personal interests or commitments. We may feel stressed out with too little time to relax and may even complicate matters by being financially deep in debt.

Simplifying your life is the answer to an out of control life and one way to do this is to set priorities in your life. Job, family, personal interests, and friends should usually be your priority order and that means spending more time and effort on your job, then family, things which interest you, and finally friends.

Too many material possessions means that you should cut back on your buying and only try to buy what you NEED and not what you WANT. This is not always easy because most of us are impulse buyers and seldom stop to ask ourselves. Can I do without the purchase for a week, month, or year? If the answer is yes then you should not buy it. If spending is a major problem then you should definitely learn to budget your money and learn about how to do it on the internet.

If many friends are not important to your job then concentrate on keeping in touch with the closest friends and let the others only be casual acquaintances which you may only remember once a year.

Having many personal interests means that you will probably not be bored but they usually do take up much of your time and even money so you can prioritize them and spend most of your time and money on the ones which you have a passion for. A smart way to prioritize interests is to ask yourself-Will these interests help me develop new skills or make me more knowledgeable? If the answer is no then you should put those interests last on your set of priorities which means spending less time, energy, and money on them.

For almost anything which you do you can ask the question. Can I spend the time, energy, and money on something better or more important? If the answer is yes then switch priorities and you will be on the road to simplifying your life.

Finally if you have a bad job then one of your major priorities should be learning new skills or new knowledge so that you can land a better job or even a different one from the one which you currently have.


Prioritizing your life or finding out what has the most importance in your life and spending more time, energy, and money on it is one of the keys to simplifying your life and getting off the frantic random treadmill which you may be on now.

Extreme desire for one goal such a career may mean that other important goals such as a good family life and strong friendships may be sacrificed.  For some women extreme dedication to family may mean that they sacrifice a good career.  Variety in life is usually sacrificed where there is extreme desire for one or only a few goals.


A selfdisciplined person has learned selfcontrol and has learned the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve a goal(s).


A selfreliant person can achieve a goal(s) largely with his own knowledge and/or skills.


Serenity is frequently an unintended goal which comes to people (incapacitated by illness and/or incapacitated by accident) and/or slowed down by old age but it frequently doesn’t exist in people with the responsibility of caring for a family or those pursuing a stressful job.


Simplicity or the shortest and/or least complex and/or speediest means to a goal(s) and is frequently the most efficient and best means to achieve a goal(s).


Success is the achievement of a goal(s).
