Life Simplified Concepts (LSC): 1-3-5-10 (excerpt from my upcoming book)

Before I go into depth detailing the outline of the book, I must preface it by introducing the four important sections which correspond to the exact breakdown of the Life Simplified Concepts (LSC), and the numeric acronym 1-3-5-10 of its methodology. The four sections chronologically are (1) Self-Sufficiency, (2) The Three Entities, (3) The Five Levels of Compatibility, and (4) The Ten Proactive Verbs. To begin to understand the overall concept and how it applies to relationships, we must first start by examining why relationships fail or why do people break up? The examination is swift because the answer is short and simple; either it is the people’s personal fault or the relationship itself was not meant to be.
The source of every couple’s problem falls into two categories; (1) it is either the couple—the people inside the relationship, whether this applies to one person individually or both—who are at fault, or (2) it is the relationship itself that is faulty. Depending on the source of any given problem, there is a different explanation and remedy for it, but the source of any marital problem is always limited to these two possible categories only. If the source of a couple’s problem are the people themselves, then the issue of Self Sufficiency is the reason, but if the couple’s problem arises out of a faulty relationship, then the issue of Compatibility is the reason. The challenge for every couple is to try to determine first which source of the two categories—the people or the relationship—apply to their problem? The answer to their challenging question is found in the section titled The Three Entities.
The Three Entities section is probably the most important and most challenging section of this book and of the entire Life Simplified Concepts philosophy. The section is preceded by the Self-Sufficiency section and followed by the Five Levels of Compatibility section. The arrangement of the sections follows the 1-3-5-10 methodology of the Life Simplified Concepts. The methodology behind the concept, better known with the 1-3-5-10 numeric acronym, serves as a prelude to the outline of the book. And as stated previously, the methodology has four sections and the book is pretty much broken into four sections following the 1-3-5-10 acronym.
The breakdown of the book into four sections is directly related to the 1-3-5-10. This numeric acronym is an abbreviated representation of Self-Sufficiency (1), The Three Entities (3), The Five Levels of Compatibility (5), and The 10 Proactive Verbs (10). These four sections are further broken down into chapters where I go into a detailed explanation of each mini-concept to further flesh out the overall LSC principles methodology. Self-Sufficiency is broken down into 5+1 chapters, The Entities into three, The Levels of Compatibility into five, and the last section into two chapters.
