Keep It Simple

Keep It Simple

There once was a famous landscape architect, a master, who traveled the world creating amazing gardens and landscapes at prestigious locations. People reported that, whenever he felt particularly challenged, he’d pull out a piece of paper from his pocket, look at it, nod, fold it back up, and then get to work creating another masterpiece. People were astounded by the brilliant designs that would seem to come out of nowhere after he studied that tiny piece of paper. 

Eventually this master designer died. His colleagues approached his widow and asked to see that mysterious piece of paper. After much to-do, she allowed them one glance at the old slip of paper. They gather around her as she unfolded it. 

  “When laying sod, always put the green side up.” 

So, the next time you find yourself in over your head and not sure of which way to turn, remember, “when laying sod, always put the green side up.” In other words, keep it simple, don’t over complicate things, and get back to the basics.
