Oftenly refered to as the KISS method. This is a method of thinking in regards to taking approaches at most things in life. Basically, when you begin to form a plan or a solution to anything it is a moment of taking a step back and seeing if you are over doing an idea. Questions to ask yourself when you are really looking things over...
Have I added too much to the idea, solution, or plan?
What this question will normally do is help you to figure out whether or not you have added too many details which clutters the main idea. When you really want to share an idea, we all really need to remind ourselves to make it a clear thought that everyone can grasp.
Is the idea clear enough for others to understand?
A lot of people (such as myself) like to articulate an idea, and make it sound brilliant by using big words. Dont! Not everyone is patient to take the time to look up complicated words. Keep it cut & dry, and very simplistic.
Does this idea paint a clear picture?
Last to any idea, is the interpretation. Does everyone understand what my idea is? Anything worth while is going to take a little bit of time to make it reality.
Last thought on the KISS method.... Life can be complicated enough, and at most times high speed.... Slow down and think a bit.... We create problems by taking small things and making them bigger than what they actually are... One way to help take a bit of frustation out of life is to try to keep things simple.... Some things are complicated, but most complicated problems (generalizing in a broad perspective) normally can be solved (or at least begin to be solved) with a simple solution... Math is an excellent example of this... Mainly calculus.... A large problem with many variables which in most cases has multiple solutions... However, in order to solve the problem, you have to simplify the problem and find the key.... With the key, you unlock the large problem a little piece at a time... With each new piece, unlocking another part of the problem... Eventually, the problem is solved....
