“Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, that’s creativity.” Charlie Mingus

“Any intelligent fool can invent further complications, but it takes a genius to retain, or to recapture, simplicity.” E.F. Schumacher

The message is: keep it simple.

For me that means making the effort to understand something so I can explain it someone else.

It means taking out unnecessary words that clog up a sentence.

It means my desire to communicate is greater than my need to impress.

What does keeping it simple mean to you?
