When you’re first thinking through an idea, it’s important not to get bogged down in complexity. Thinking simply and clearly, is hard to do.
~~ Richard Branson
I, and many people, when thinking of the next cool idea, often get bogged down in complexity. We start thinking about how to make it work better, easier, smarter. The problem is we often forget to think simply and clearly. Sometimes doing things simply work. Steve Jobs was famous for making Apple products simple. The iPod was not complicated. It was simple to use, it was simple to understand. It was even more simple to understand what it did. Do you remember what it did? You are probably thinking about the wrong things.
Steve Jobs created the iPod to do one thing. He said it simply at the product announcement in 2001. “It puts 7500 songs in your pocket.”
Don’t get bogged down in complexity when you come up with your next cool idea. Make it work as simple as you can. I just disconnected my monthly account with Buffer. I loved the Buffer App. It was so easy for me to post content to my many social media channels while I was commuting. It was just a couple flicks with my finger. I loved being able to get my posting scheduled and queued up while I was taking the BART Train into work or back home. They provided great content based on my profile. It worked really well and easy.
They changed it. It’s more complex now. It is still a great app . . . . for the desktop. I did most of my social media posts while commuting . . . . on my smartphone. It’s too hard for me to use, for me.
Did they get bogged down in complexity?
