Keep It Simple Stupid!
I will keep this short this morning but I wanted to chat real quick about the philosophy of “Keep It Simple Stupid.” Now don’t twist this around and say I’m calling people Stupid….the principle here is that to make something complicated for the sake of making it complicated is not such a smart IDEA or just Stupid, not the person.
Now with that out of the way let’s go into a little about the K.I.S.S. principle or Keep It Simple Stupid.
I know you have all heard this principle toss around over the years, and probably thought yeah that a cliche but complexity makes things much better because the end up with more value and a stronger business.
Well I’m here to tell you that the K.I.S.S. principle is exactly what the Network Marketing profession NEEDS! I can’t tell you how many times I have sat down with some teammates and listened to some new fangled way to reinvent the wheel. The only difference being that this new and approved method is so complicated that it IS NOT DUPLICATABLE!
The most important thing that you need in building your business is to be duplicatable. If the system you have is so hard you need a degree to do it, then the average person wanting to start their own home business won’t succeed.
Here’s a definition that I got off the web that clearly defines the KISS Principle
Definition – What does Keep It Simple Stupid Principle (KISS Principle) mean?
The “keep it simple stupid” (KISS) principle is a design rule that states that systems perform best when they have simple designs rather than complex ones. KISS is not meant to imply stupidity. On the contrary, it is usually associated with intelligent systems that may be misconstrued as stupid because of their simplistic design. The KISS Principle hinders and/or prevents creeping featurism, system failover and other IT issues.
KISS is also an acronym for “keep it short and simple” and “keep it simple and straighforward”.
I can’t stress enough the importance of Keeping It Simple. You will never build a big team if you have such a complex system that either, you have to be involved with every new recruit, or it’s so complex that people lose interest very quickly.
I have seen this so many times where people think they know better and have a better way for building it FAST and every time it has exploded and any financial gain was very temporary.
I know because in the beginning I was one of those people. Take it from me and all the Top Earners, IT DOESN’T WORK!
Make a new resolution this year, 2015, that you will follow your team or company system and teach your team to do the same. Keep It Simple Stupid should be your team montra.
