On simplicity

Information overload, though a good problem to have, is detrimental to your efficacy and industriousness. Much like you break down your tasks into easier-to-digest, actionable pieces, you should do the same with your plans and knowledge in general. Rather than try to take in every ounce of information you need, or take notes on each and every subject that comes up in a given conversation or talk, simplify. Simplify your business plan when it becomes too convoluted to understand. Simplify all of your projects until they’re easy enough to understand both to you and an outsider. In this way, you are creating a system that others could operate (which makes your business more scalable), but you’re also making your plan more straightforward to accomplish. In the end, that’s all that matters. The best idea is the one you are able to execute.
