The son’s plan of action wasn’t complicated. It was pretty simple. Get up, go home, talk to his father. He didn’t plan a pit stop to get cleaned up. He didn’t plan a way to earn a little money so he wasn’t going home broke. He didn’t complicate the plan with any unnecessary steps.

Keeping it simple can be hard for us. But when you try to tie up every possible loose end, you just end up frustrated and convinced you need to work harder at the solution instead of actually reaching the solution. Sometimes we need a simple—not perfect—plan of action to cut through the knots.”—AHA Student Edition electronic edition
