Do Simple Better

I love watching baseball – and my favorite is MLB TV and the MLB iPad app – where I catch any of a dozen teams I follow, including the Chicago Cubs.  I love the Cub’s Manager Joe Maddon — one of those really smart types that can break down the complicated and make it actionable.  In a post game media interview recently he wore a t-shirt with the motto “Do Simple Better” and went on to explain which of the 4 or 5 simple things that happened in tonight’s game made the difference for his team.

What a powerful thought though — Do Simple Better.

The next day — a restaurant owner told me a story about his team pondering how to reduce wasted coffee creamer – the winning solution?  Smaller containers.  Simple.

I think we should all get Do Simple Better t-shirts to remind us that the simplest solution is often the best one — but also often the hardest one to see.

Cheers.  DC
