Keep it Simple

“Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.”  – Albert Einstein

When you’re trying to create a system to organize your projects and obligations, keep it simple but be sure it does what you need it to do.

“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex… It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.”  – Albert Einstein

Don’t get so caught up in learning a new computer program or creating such a wonderful system that you forget you started out to complete your projects and obligations.

“Life is pretty simple: You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works.”Leonardo da Vinci

Try things! Try a simple approach and learn from what works and what doesn’t.

“Dealing with complexity is an inefficient and unnecessary waste of time, attention and mental energy. There is never any justification for things being complex when they could be simple.”Edward de Bono

For some reason, we don’t seem to feel that simple approaches will work. Yet it is the simple approaches that are most likely to get done and therefore to be remembered.

“It is far more difficult to be simple than to be complicated.”  – John Ruskin

Designing a simple system may require experienced help. The first time through you are likely to see vexing problems instead of straightforward solutions.

“Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day.” – Jim Rohn

Remembering to practice is the key. Be sure you include a simple system to remind you to do it.
