People all too often complicate things -- make unnecessary work for themselves. They work harder, not smarter.
Boy is this Truth. Just this morning I had an example of it. I called a client to report on a project I was working for him, simply to pass along two numbers related to the analysis. All he had to do was write them down on a piece of paper, but NOOOOOO, he had to boot his computer, hunt for the correct data file, open it, find the proper spreadsheet line and column, and THEN I could give him the numbers. The ten-second chore took about four minutes.
