The Law of Subtractions by @MatthewEMay

February 13, 2017 Leave a comment Go to comments

Just finished the book “The Law of Subtractions” By Matthew E. May.  My husband had bought it for me a while ago, but I just got around to it.    I love the simpleness of it.  There are 6 Laws of Subtraction.

  1. What isn’t there can often trump what is.
  2. The simplest rules create the most effective experience
  3. Limiting information engages the imagination
  4. Creativity thrives under intelligent constraints
  5. Break is the important part of breakthrough
  6. Doing something isn’t always better than doing nothing

In each of the chapters they also highlight business people who have used the law of subtraction in their work.  This is a great book for anyone to think about what can we do without and how does doing without make our lives better.
