Have you ever said to someone, “you’re making this too complicated”? If so, you have made a mistake. What you actually meant is “you haven’t made this simple enough.” The point is that complication is the natural state. We don’t need any effort to make things complicated; they already are. We need to make an effort to make them simple. And, as the world becomes more complex and faster-moving, that effortbecomes more and more important. The only solution to more complexity is more simplicity. More than anything else, it requires an ability to step outside the complicated problem and see it in a completely new way.
Good people are good at answering complicated questions. Great people are great at asking simple questions.
