I’ve been thinking about the simplicity in teaching people about concepts and ideas over the past few days. I often refer back to one of my favourite quotes.
People are busy. They are seemingly running all the time.
They are consuming small, bite-sized pieces of information non-stop throughout the day.
When they want to learn something, complex, confusing information leads to overwhelm, and frustration in the topic(s) trying to be understood.
I’ve had very good discussions online lately with key contacts about:
- Processes that I incorporate daily in my online business
- Building a following on websites
One common theme really resonated with people as we dove deeper in to the subjects.
Keeping it simple.
They LOVED that about my line of thinking.
Throughout my 9-5 career, and online “lives” I’ve found a “secret sauce” that works for me over and over again.
Find out what works, get systems in place and repeat as required.
These are not earth-shattering, revolutionary things.
Just key things that I implement in my daily work.
It can be. But as people start to struggle with teaching things (or learning themselves) they tend to quickly abandon those ideas and start to complicate it. That’s when the wheels can fall off.

Do you see some, “Duh Tim, everybody knows that” points?
There’s an argument that some of the points are so basic it’s almost embarrassing that I mentioned them.
Are you sure? Because how many people are not incorporating those tips in to their day to day social networking.
Quick self-check – Are you?
I’ll leave you with another great quote that I refer to often,
I’d love if you took a moment to comment on how you could simplify your work, and/or life in general as 2016 comes to a close, and we look forward to 2017.
