Excellent post! Of the 3 reasons for complexity, the first and third are the most challenging, in my opinion. More and more, leaders generally agree that simple is better. But simple is so much more challenging. A great, funny video on this very topic here. Hopefully you're not laughing because it's true!

Thanks for sharing that--I think a lot of readers will enjoy it.

Also: do you have an email address with which I can contact you directly? Wanted to talk a bit about JBU. You can contact me here at steve@steveroesler.com.

Another good post with Food for Thought, Steve. I think it aligns well with the concept of "Muri" in Lean Thinking, or the Overburdening of People.

If you throw too much at people for them to digest, the message is more about what you want to say than what they want to hear. As such, your message becomes difficult to follow, at best, or simply irritating, at worst. Making things more difficult or more irritating is, quite clearly, placing an extra burden on someone else.

Simply put - consider the audience first, and say what is valuable to them, not you.
