10. Conduct, Line 1

“Simple conduct.”

If you remain grounded in simplicity, you can progress. If you act out of restlessness or ambition, you will fail. Focus on the accomplishment, not the reward.

………………………………………………………………………………..

You are trying to build something, or achieve something. Don’t get ahead of yourself; take each step and complete it before moving on.

The Yi says: “Keep it simple, stupid.” Expecting too much, too soon will be fatal.

Example: You want to run a marathon. You can see yourself crossing the finish line first, to the roar of the crowd. Stop right there. Change your focus to something simpler to achieve, like improving your muscle strength or your cardiovascular fitness.

Keep in mind — “rewards” are bestowed by others, and they can be given or taken away at their whim. “Accomplishments,” like improving your strength, are yours to keep.
