Steve Jobs on Problem Analysis

When you start looking at a problem and it seems really simple,  you don’t really understand the complexity of the problem.  Then you get into the problem,  and you see that it’s really complicated,  and you come up with all these convoluted solutions.  That’s sort of the middle,  and that’s where most people stop…

But the really great person will keep on going and find the key, the underlying principle of the problem — and come up with an elegant,  really beautiful solution that works.

Steve Jobs.I quite like this quote as I believe it’s presented in an eloquent manner which reflects it’s message.   It also presents in idea that seems obvious once you see it but not many people actually follow through on.  Maybe that is because to do so requires hard work.

This sort of approach is necessary if you want to create solutions that fade into the background.

It’s interesting to consider how such an idea would affect your workflow.  For this idea to be implemented in your business would require changes in the way most people do things.
