Simplify My Life, Please

Everyone is overwhelmed.  Overfed.  Overstimulated.  Over-informed.  We’ve all got much too much, going much too fast, sometimes going nowhere but in circles.

I just spent way more than desired time on selecting a theme for this blog from the template options offered.  There were simply too many choices.  I wanted to decide, but too much choice was a burden.

All day long I’m asked by my customers, “What have you got?”  Really?  Can you not put just a little bit of thought into that question, because honestly I don’t think you want to know everything I’ve got.

Really, all they want are a few options from me from which to choose.  People love a Lo/Med/Hi menu.  Works like a charm every time.  Overlay a graduated discount schedule and you’ve made a new friend.

Strive to avoid perfection.  Perfection is elusive and counter-productive.  No one wants perfection.  They want options.  Give me A, B or C.  Then we call it a day.

And I can go back to driving with my thigh, while texting, channel surfing, drinking coffee and navigating another merge.  Much too much.
