Nice quote from a technical presenter that I heard today son.
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex and more violent. it takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. Einstein
You should read up on Occam’s razor. You are intelligent and you aint no fool, but there are several things to this quote. It is true, just making things bigger or more complex is very easy. But to make things better or smaller, less complex and more simple, etc. is difficult. When you are dealing with organisations or projects or work, make sure things remain simple, sweat the details and don't run things to make them big just because big is good. No, its not.
