Things to Think About - If you can't explain it to a six-year-old, you don't understand it yourself

By Pepper de Callier

"If you can't explain it to a six-year-old, you don't understand it yourself."  Albert Einstein 

Have you ever been in a meeting listening to someone explaining something, and it seemed like the more they said, the more confused people got?  Sometimes it’s because of a flurry of jargon and acronyms, sometimes it’s because of vocabulary that is supposed to impress us, and sometimes it’s because some people have a talent for complicating things.  When I was a kid, someone created the KISS principle for communicating, which is Keep It Simple Stupid, and it was never more needed than today.  By keeping things simple, you not only greatly expand your audience, but you make it easy for them to understand, buy-in, and share the idea with others.  Why not even try it out on a six-year-old?

Till next time…

Things to Think About (By Pepper de Callier)
Who you are speaks so loudly, I can’t hear a word you’re saying
The secret to success is to maintain enthusiasm between failures
When you are the anvil, hold you still.  But, when you are the hammer, strike your fill
Success is getting what you want.  Happiness is wanting what you get
I am not an Athenian, I am not a Greek, I am a citizen of the world
When I’m afraid of losing, I never win
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear
Our greatest freedom is the freedom to choose our attitude
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, ... 
How hard it is, sometimes, to trust the evidence of one's senses! How reluctantly the mind consents to reality.
We don't see things as they are. We see things as we are
It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves 
If you believe everything you read, better not read 
People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care
Winning is as much about attitude as aptitude especially when the chips are down 
The human mind treats a new idea the same way the body treats a strange protein; it rejects it.
Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd
