“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”

–     Leondardo daVinci (1452 – 1519), Italian Renaissance man and master of many arts, sciences and other disciplines….simplistically…

More or longer words don’t make it more sophisticated.  More slides in the deck don’t make it more sophisticated.

If we’re spending more time trying to impress than we are to communicate, we add complexity to the equation, not sophistication and surely not simplicity.

Simplicity is our friend.  Complexity Human-induced complexity breeds misunderstanding and clouds expectations.

Simplicity – which is not a synonym for “simple” – adds sophisticated clarity.

I remember after my dad’s first cancer surgery I complimented his surgeon, Dr. Al-Jerf, on how amazingly efficient he was at an extraordinarily complex surgery.

He said, “What I do is simple. Another doctor found cancer inside your father. I removed it.”

I’m thinkin’ that’s why he’s so good.

In simplicity lies the answer.  Difference makers cut through the complexity to find the straight-forward way forward.
