The workplace, just like the world today, is complex. While keeping things simple has been a helpful motto, it sometimes is simply a way of making us accept mediocrity. Let's not push ourselves to learn more, be more, expect more!
I do believe that we can make things more complex than they need to be and, by doing so, tie ourselves in knots. When we can set meaningful standards for ourselves, our organizations and our contributions, we'll make concepts, learning and growth more sticky, clearer and more applicable. AND we need to beware of the packaged lessons that are too simple and formulaic - they either distract us or make us feel the high of learning without the depth or meaning needed for new connections to make change possible.
