The quality of your work is critical. But more important is your ability to consistently create quality work. That’s the mark of true brilliance.
Consistency is enabled by simplicity. Simple products that solve simple problems that are marketed with simple messaging to customers who want simple solutions.
Always start simple. Then sprinkle in your creative point of view to stand out in your industry’s sea of sameness.
So let go of anything or anyone that complicates A) people noticing and paying for your brilliance and B) your ability to create and share more of your brilliance with the world.
