Simplified Simplification

Posted on

Things should be made as simple as possible, but not any simpler.

—Albert Einstein

I realized today that if I simplify any more I will have reached the point of diminishing returns. In other words, any more simplification in my life will have a negative net effect.

So what is an optimizer to do when can no longer optimize? MOAR OPTIMIZE ! no… I don’t think so.

I am not saying that I am perfectly simplified in all ways. I just don’t think that the return would be worth the effort.
