We regularly deal with complicated, complex issues: challenges of cultural change, market fluctuations, leadership, and more. And, personally, there is a part of me that loves that challenge, that impulse to understand the whole picture, all the moving parts and potential risks. And the thrill that comes from pulling it all together into an elegant design, that solution that just hums. It can be intoxicating and all-encompassing.

And sometimes, whether because of budget or time constraints, or because of some other constraint, the amazing, elegant, all-together-now humming solution is just not going to happen. And you’re reminded that simple can be even more powerful.
