Friday funny. You’ve heard of the KISS Principle, right? Keep It Simple Stupid (or I prefer Silly). Now I’d like to introduce the KSS Principle!
My clients have told me for years that one of my superpowers is breaking down complex concepts and making them simple.
In fact, one of the best testimonials I’ve ever gotten came from Mike Saxton, who said, “𝘒𝘪𝘮 𝘪𝘴 𝘰𝘯𝘦 𝘰𝘧 𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘴𝘦 𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘺 𝘳𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘩𝘶𝘮𝘢𝘯𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘤𝘢𝘯 𝘵𝘢𝘬𝘦 𝘴𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘢𝘴 𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘱𝘭𝘦𝘹 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦 𝘤𝘰𝘯𝘴𝘶𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘢𝘴 𝘳𝘦𝘤𝘳𝘶𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘳𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘱𝘦𝘰𝘱𝘭𝘦 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘮𝘢𝘬𝘦 𝘪𝘵 𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺 𝘴𝘪𝘮𝘱𝘭𝘦.”
A few months ago, I was leading a training session, and I mentioned the KISS Principle…and one of the participants said, you should rename it the KSS Principle for Kim Seeling Smith. We had a good laugh, but now I find myself saying it frequently.
I may even start branding my posts and newsletters the KSS Principle. What do you think? 🙂
