Let Me Ask You A Question – 3/30/17


I work diligently to expand my mind.  I contemplate constantly and sometimes overthink life and it causes me some internal stress.

Let me ask you a question:


Would you rather be a stress-filled genius or a joyful simpleton?

  1. I can’t believe I’m about to say this but lately I’m starting to think my health and quality of life would be better if I was just a joyful simpleton. I just had a conversation about this last night. I drive myself crazy overthinking and continually trying to improve myself. What is the consequence? My peace of mind, my health? It’s a tough question to answer honestly.

  2. I kinda like the idea of not being so stressed. I overthink and overanalyze a lot. But, do I really want to be a simpleton, though? But, joyful? That’s deep contentment. I think I’d have to go with “joyful simpleton.”

  3. Hmmm… Very “Brave New World”, and a question I’ve been asking myself every time I have a thought for the book.

    I think I would go for Happy Simpleton. I am not a genius, and life is already stressful, I can’t imagine spending a lifetime spent with a tortured brain, though I guess that’s in part, what pushes some geniuses to work on world issues.

    Yup Happy Simpleton here…

  4. I’m overthink, too. I do have two goals in my life. One, we discussed yesterday, another is saying no to things I want but don’t need. I believe when I get a handle on them, my life will be easier to live, joyfully simple. I hope, I hope I have said this clear enough to understand. Thank you, for asking.

  5. I try to alternate between them. I have to be a flat out workaholic consultant five days per week. My weekends are reserved for the joyful simpleton in me. My plan is for the simpleton to earn more time gradually over the next 10 years or so.
