I Know Nothing

This is going to sound odd given the title of the blog but I actually know very little about simplicity . . . I actually know very little about beer other than if it tastes like coffee, candy, cookies or pumpkins . . . pretty much anything other than beer, I like it. But I’ll focus on the simplicity part for now.

So the question is, if I know so little about simplicity then why do I have a blog on the topic?

The truth is I’ll never know very much about simplicity and that’s because what I know today will pale in comparison with what I know tomorrow. In fact, what I learn tomorrow may make me redact, or at least amend, anything I say today.

But be less enigmatic, all I’m saying is that we never reach a point where we can say, “Got it. I’m done. Everything has been simplified.” It’s an ongoing journey and I welcome you to join me on this journey.

To that end, on this page I have a list of every post I’ve ever written. Start at the bottom and work your way up or cherry-pick whatever intrigues you.

Fairly often I’ll throw in some cool checklists (I love checklists) that facilitate the learning and implementation process.  You can check out my most popular checklists over here.

Everything I put out there is either free or requires a signifiant investment.  I choose not to play in the middle.  As you might have guessed, all the free stuff is here on the blog.  

If you want to take your business to the “next level” (how’s that for an ambiguous term that tells you nothing) I do a 3-day event.  Click HERE to find out when the next one is happening and how you can attend.

Now getting back to that whole “simplicity” thing. I’ve discovered that people, myself included, often teach the very thing we’re working on in our own lives.

I’ve been on a journey for the past few years to simplify my business and my life. Sometimes it works and sometimes it royally backfires and I wonder how I managed to complicate the hell out of something that was so simple to begin with.

That’s just part of being human. Making things more complicated than they need to be and breaking shit that’s working . . . for no good reason . . . just because we’re bored.

But all said and done, I’ve made some progress toward simplifying my business and my life. So instead of purporting to know everything . . . or anything . . . about simplification, my goal with Beer With Sameer is to share with you what I’ve done, but more importantly, what I’m doing right now . . . today . . . this very minute . . . to simplify my own business and my own life.

So in the immortal words of Bruce Lee, “Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.”
