Do You Simplify Or Complicate?

by Paul Castain on April 12, 2013

Sometimes when we present our thoughts and ideas to others we go over the top technical, clinical and take the scenic route when simple might have been better.

We tend to think that big words and technical terms impress when in fact, they might discourage.

If someone doesn’t know what you’re talking about they might lack the confidence to ask you to “dumb it down”.

Funny thing about us humans . . .

We tend to avoid the things that make us uncomfortable!

It can best be visualized by a 7 foot body guard putting his arm across you telling you “Don’t go in there”.

The body guard goes by the name of “EGO”.

Unfortunately, everyone loses when that happens!

That’s it . . . a simple message today . . . about simplifying YOUR message!

    Thanks for the reminder Paul! I know there are times I unintentionally do this and have to remind myself to K.I.S.S.

    I think we’ve all dropped the ball on this one at least a few times.

    Thank you for taking the time to respond and have a great weekend!

    Cheers!

    In my mind I think I simplify…the reality…I tend to find the most complicated route! I’m working on it (for years!)
