All too often we come up with the most complex reason for, and solution to, a problem. Yet, the obvious solution evades us. I suppose it's our own self-importance that plays a big role in this form of blindness.

I suggest:

  • If your computer doesn't work, first see if it is plugged in
  • If you're overweight, eat less and exercise more
  • If you don't want your mother to worry about you, call her once in a while
  • And, if you want to develop great software, model reality, not ideal-ality
