Most recently I have been consumed by the power of Simple. Yes. Simple. Frequently I volunteer to help out communities and individuals in need. I see it as a part of the "stay at home ethos". Unfortunately, I've found that in certain instances my "business strategy" background gets in the way of the "stay at home volunteer" culture. (Yes, it is a whole subset of behaviors.) So in order to minimize the "no good deed goes unpunished" outcome, I objectify Simple. Meaning, I make the simplest outcome the object of my volunteerism. This way, you don't get bogged down in messy process and the misperception of jockeying around for position or power. Look to the best outcome possible, gather up your ingredients, and make the best darn dessert you possible can - and be quick about it.
