Because how we see things is pretty much how things are for all of us, I put together this short list of Simple Rules based upon The 4 Truths, a wonderful model that has emerged from the field of human systems dynamics and the work of its founder, Dr. Glenda Eoyang.

Though not strictly Simple Rules, the following aligns with the Truth as we know it.


Simple Rules for Finding the Truth

  • Objective Truth: Just the facts, Ma’am. –Dragnet
  • Subjective Truth: How you look at it is pretty much how you’ll see it. -Rasheed Ogunlaru
  • Normative Truth: Say not, ‘I have found the truth,’ but rather, ‘I have found a truth.’ –Kahlil Gibran
  • Complex Truth: Search for the true and useful. –HSD Institute Simple Rule

So, what is YOUR truth?
