If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.

I’m always so impressed when someone can sum up something so big with so few words. Like this review of The Wizard of Oz:

Transported to a surreal landscape, a young girl kills the first person she meets and then teams up with three strangers to kill again.

Okay, so maybe that doesn’t give off the normal Wizard of Oz vibe, but it’s all true. A perfect little summary wrapped up nicely with a bow.

Some publishing companies do this with books. You can open the book to where the copyright info is and find a one-sentence summary of it. Three hundred pages summed up in a few words. It makes me want to do a jig.

What would a post about simplicity be without mentioning the company that invented simplicity? Oh, yes. I’m talking about Apple. From their sleek logo to their minimal packaging, it’s all about simple. And simple sells.


Find the beauty in the simple things. It’s so out there, you might miss it.
