Keep it Simple!

"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." Leonardo da Vinci

Quick 2 part quiz:
1) How many remote controls do you have in your house?

Why are we all so stressed out these days? I would argue the reason for the stress is because we our lives are too complicated, and they need to be simpler. Don’t believe me?

2) How many devices do you have that use remotes have buttons you could use instead of these remotes?

Do you really think you need these remotes? Do you really think you need these devices? Now I’m as guilty as the next. I have 6 remotes I can see right now without really looking, and probably another 3 or 4 I can’t find or don’t know about. I am working towards making things simpler in other parts of my life. I only have 1 bank account where I keep money, I only have 1 place where I get all my insurance, and I try to write all my notes in only 1 notebook. I’m also working on saving all my computer files in 1 place, and just bought a new computer that will allow me to keep these files all on my PC, with a backup already made so I don’t freak out if something crashes. I encourage you to do the same.

Now if I could just find the remote to shut off my TV, I could go to bed.

MUST…GET…SIMPLER!

“When someone first mentioned Phil to me 3 years ago, she described him this way: “He’s the real deal.” Every time I’ve spoken with or seen Phil interviewing or doing a public speaking gig since, that has proven true. Then, when I felt it was time for me to do some re-branding after over 10 successful years in business, I knew I wanted the benefit of a creative, energetic and smart soul to bounce ideas off of. I knew I wanted someone who grasps branding but works in realms not just narrowly focused on branding alone. Phil came immediately to mind. The results with Phil were exceptional. He pressed my thinking where I’d asked him to (and a few well-selected place I hadn’t!), proved a superb brainstorming and idea-generating partner, and invited me to deepen my thinking about some of the brand ideas I was considering. And he did it all with high energy, a sunny demeanor, and reliable timeliness. Phil Gerbyshak is the real deal indeed.”
