A Paradigm of Personalization
I couldn’t help but marvel at the elegance of nature this past month. Snow, rains, winds, all perfectly executed by nature and imperfectly responded to by humans. The concept of elegance has stayed with me as I looked at its expression in other areas of my life. An elegant design or piece of music, perfectly conceptualized and then perfectly executed. To me, this has a grace that is difficult to explain in words, although I certainly understand it and feel it.
I like to think there’s an elegance in the work that we do at D’Adamo Personalized Nutrition (DPN), largely driven by the work that Peter does, whether it is in designing personalized systems that support optimal health and well-being; his research and design of bioinformatics systems to capture data to provide predictive information about future health trends; his computer programming (a self-taught skill) which allows him to create a platform for the company via our website; and in his product formulations. Each of these areas has the simplicity that comes from mastering a complex or complicated idea. The elegance in this process is the ability to maintain the integrity of the concepts while simplifying them, and making them understandable and useable, and I believe this is one of Peter’s greatest attributes in each of these areas. There’s a quote from Leonardo da Vinci, which is “Simplicity is the ultimate in sophistication.” With great respect to da Vinci, I would take this one step further, “Simplicity is the ultimate in elegance,” and this is what we strive to do at DPN.
I think about how this applies to me personally, as I try to refine my lifestyle to include more time and less clutter…time to enjoy, time to be, time to express myself. The clutter is not just “stuff,” it is unnecessary behavior on my part that lends itself to more work or more things to do. This month, I am committed to streamlining my life, getting rid of those unessential items and behaviors that keep me from fully enjoying my life. This goes for my professional life as well, as we continually explore how we can make DPN a better company as well as a better overall experience for our customers.
We will be continually adding to the site through new features which help you to continually learn more about the Blood Type Diet, GenoType diet and our proprietary SWAMI personalized nutrition software.
These elements are all part of a paradigm of personalization, and your sharing this journey with us means that you are participating in the medicine of the future. It’s an exciting adventure and we are glad to have you with us.
Here’s to an elegant March.
