To Succeed Love Process

As a product designer I often have to stiff-arm impatient alphas on the left side of sywx' curve asking for simplicity this way: "just make it simple". Just. "What you don't get," they say, "is that all this labcoat gobbledygook language about running experiments is a-complexificating an issue that a goat could solve in ten minutes."

I just have to hope for time to keep running fancy experiments until I find the simple solution. One falls to the left, the next to the right, the next to the left but closer, the last hits the target.

The difference between left-side simplicity and right-side simplicity is autotelic love of the process. Workmanship, patience, insight, the slow accumulation of skill are ends in themselves.
