Does your idea make sense?
Draw it for me:
- If it’s simple, draw it simple: When pressed to draw our ideas, we might find we fill half a sheet of paper to fully articulate our new idea. This means we don’t understand it well enough.
- Hiding behind complexity: It’s easy to make an idea seem complicated, because complications let us hide a lack of clarity from ourselves. Clarity is harder.
- Understanding enough to simplify: “A rocket that deploys from a plane so it can break and re-enter orbit in one piece without waste.” “A one-page website that tells a story vs making people click to understand.” Simple.
Simple drawings. Dots, lines, circles. What does your idea look like?
