"Complexity is the enemy of execution"
I heard this quote for the first time from Tony Robbins; an American author, coach, speaker, and philanthropist.
I took it to mean that the more we try planning and anticipating everything upfront, the more likely we are to procrastinate and get paralysed into inaction, or partial completion. Information overload feeds procrastination and can lead to overwhelm.
This is a challenge both for companies and individuals. Even more so now, where access to information abounds and is easily accessible.
