“I didn’t have time to write you a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.”
― Mark Twain

Keeping things simple is difficult, because you need to gain simplicity.
Simplicity is not given. It’s gained.

As to me, it doesn’t work this way:
Simple -> Moderate -> Complex

but it works this way:
Prototype/Try -> Moderate -> Complex -> Toooo Complex -> Simple

That’s why, to get Simple state you need to pass all this “Simplicity journey”, get to the Root Cause, get Wiser along the way and find that glory Simplicity.

A lot of efforts, right? It’s much easier not to pass that journey.
That’s why most people won’t.

Thanks for an article!
