Simple is Our Friend

If you want to be paranoid about one thing in business, be on the lookout for complexity.

Complexity is the downfall of many great ideas, companies, and relationships. If something seems too complicated or a relationship too fuzzy or a product is difficult to use, you can count on failure.

If an employee says his job is hard to understand or her responsibilities are not clear, at best they're crying out for help, at worst, they're letting you know they're not engaged. No matter, count on that professional relationship falling short.

Why do we surround ourselves with complexity instead of simplicity? It's scary to deal with simplicity. Simplicity is clear, black and white, and it's naked--nothing is covering it up.

Complexity is out to get us. The answer is simple.
