Steve Kovacs’ The Simple Keys

Stock Image www.morguefile.com

Most things in life are accomplished through basic step-by-step measures not complicated ideas or actions. Even complicated issues are best broken down to manageable  simple keys, for us to best handle them. As Colin Powell said, “Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate and doubt, to offer a solution everybody can understand.” In addition, when we talk and write in a more simple and concise manner, people understand more easily and enjoy the communication process more. Of course, there are technical issues and other matters which need to be written about in depth and with more detail, however, in most of life’s communications, simple is best.

The Simple Keys is about that kind of simplicity. Written for the utmost of honest human communication on a multitude of topics, most articles are written by Steve Kovacs and cover his expertise, opinions and experiences. At times, there are other contributors to the Simple Keys, but mostly, articles come from Steve.

Thanks for reading and welcome to The Simple Keys!

      I was having a snack and watching TV when my 10 year old niece walked into the room and blurted out, “Wow! You ARE old. You’re watching black and white TV!” I glanced up at her and then back to the TV and exclaimed, “You’ve never watched Andy of Mayberry! ...

      What makes for a good communicator, teacher or speech maker? While talking, personally, I’m never at a loss for words. I know some people who know me are probably shaking their heads a bit, saying, “You certainly can say that again Steve, because you certainly do talk a lot! I ...
    • The Hypocrisy in My Fellow Lefties Needs to Stop
      I suppose many would say I'm not a true-blue leftist, and they would be right...no pun intended. I have many views that are very liberal, and yet I maintain that we desperately need to stop being dependent on government for everything. In many ways I'm what was originally meant by ...
    • Homicide and Help in America
      In the last year or so I’ve listened to governmental officials including President Obama and some criminologists saying that violent crime is substantially down in America and those Americans who think we are less safe than we were a decade or so ago are dimwits, uninformed or have been bamboozled ...

      Memory lane. 1975. 'Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes' featuring Teddy Pendergrass were on top of the soul music charts with several songs, including ‘Wake Up Everybody’. That song was, and to this day, is one of my favorites. It’s about how bad the times were back in the 1970’s ...
    • 69 Killed By Madman-Victims Frozen to Death By Fear-Learn to Survive Violence
      Norway has a low murder rate. Much lower than in the United States. Therefore, it's a bit shocking that in 2011 a 33 year old Norwegian gunned down 69 people, most of them teenagers. Anders Behring Breivik described the massacre he committed very calmly during the initial stages of his ...
    • Getting Bullied as a Kid, Feeling Inferior and Learning to Fight
      Keith was verbally picked on all of his young life and even once while in high-school, was slapped in the face by a malcontent school yard bully. Getting slapped in the face, for a man, is almost as bad as being spit on. There’s something so degrading about a slap ...
    • Human Cockroaches and Light
      Nighttime burglars are like cockroaches. In fact, most nighttime criminals are just like cockroaches—they cannot stand light! People laugh when I mention the comparison but it’s true. Nighttime criminals work hard to not be seen by victims or anyone else for that matter. They walk in the shadows, love the ...
    • Fear and Battle—How To Handle It
      A common theme I hear from students taking self-defense is whether or not they’ll really be able to fight back and protect themselves against an attacker.
