A crash course in changing the world.
As Leonardo da Vinci said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”... I have always considered that my job, as a consultant, was to transform complicated things into simple ones. From user interfaces, design specifications, PowerPoint presentation, to sentences, to ideas, everything needs to stay as simple as can be. It is this absence of impurity that makes everything you do easier to be understood, easier to be shared.
This will probably require more work than you think to make anything simple instead of complicated. Simplicity requires many things... It requires a global vision of the problem: you will need to see it from every possible angle before knowing which one is the most simple. Imagine a cliff, how can you be sure it is the best way to get up there until you have seen it from every angle? It will also requires that you accept to go backward, and start from scratch, even when you are close to resolve your issue!
So whatever you will try to do with simplicity, it will require a lot of energy... Just think of how much energy you’ll save for others, for when they’ll try to tackle the same problem. And if we all save each other that energy, imagine what we can achieve...
