The Drift to Complication

Just like entropy - the gradual decline into disorder, there is a drift from the simple to the complex.

We have to constantly fight the slide to the complex, always invest in pairing down, shedding and trashing.

Consider spending 20% of your efforts on removing from what has been done before. Maybe there is an 80/20 pay off here, maybe that 20% is what makes the 80% of what you want to get done, actually get done.
