Kennesaw – A quick shout out to my friend, Butch Adams, who gave me some great insight on simplicity last week.  When I started work at GE in Cincinnati, there was a sign over the door that simply said,

“Speed, Simplicity, Self-confidence”.

Our environment today benefits those who can quickly act, react and be decisive.  Not only in business but in most areas of our lives.  Take a minute and click on the link above and read the Harvard Business Review article with Jack Welch, former CEO of GE and see why he was such a visionary leader.  Oh, and by way, this concept is not exactly a new one.  Leonardo da Vinci  who died in 1519, penned, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”.  It’s truer now than ever.
