• @hudali15: Ali, I revisited your presentation, 'All You Can' at http://www.slideshare.net/hudali15/all-you-can. I'm still inspired by your presentation. You dare us to dream but to achieve our dreams, we must realize that reality poses constraints. It's good to know that reality poses constraints as counterintuitively expressed in the Universal Law of Diminishing Returns and upon which you touched in the expression of 'More is Less.' I also see the phenomenon of More is Less in expressions such as 'Too many cooks spoil the broth'; 'The last straw that broke the camel's back'; 'Too much of one thing is good for nothing.' Contrasting the Law of Diminishing Returns is the 'Law of Increasing Returns (Network Effects).' This latter law, which is reminiscent of the Butterfly Principle in Chaos Theory, focuses on how tiny perturbations eventually cause large scale events such as hurricanes and avalanches. Underlying the Law of Increasing Returns are non-linear (exponential) processes which give rise to situations of where the effect is disproportionate to the magnitude of the cause. Also, the 80/20 Principle - which indicates that 80% of an effect can be accounted for by 20% of the causes - provides many every day examples of the Less-is-More situation. On reflection and in respect of the Less-is-More principle, I'll refrain from saying more and hope that my pause says more than my 'notes.'

• Rod- you wrote '. In my daily life, I know that beyond a critical point, more haste leads to less speed. For instance, beyond a certain point, the faster I try to find something, the less likely it is for me to find it'. I wish you had written this earlier so that I could have used it in my presentation All You Can. I gave few examples of more is less and this one would have perfectly fitted in.
By the way' Less is More is the same or it may trigger different thinking? Any idea, Rod/
