"If you aren’t big enough to stand criticism, you’re too small to be praised"
We long for simplicity and satisfaction. Simplexity therefore stands for a balance between the growing complexity of daily life and our own personal satisfaction. In order to attain this state, we have to stop always striving to make optimal decisions. In the future, it will be more important to make judgments that are just good enough.

Simplexity: in systems theory a term for the emergence of simple features as a direct (though possibly highly intricate) consequence of a system of rules.
