Simple vs Easy

Ronald Reagan said, “They say we offer simple answers to complex problems. Well, perhaps there is a simple answer – not an easy answer but simple.”  I love problem solving. The method I use, is to reduce a problem to it’s simplest form. We do that with our teaching metaphors in the book. This method makes the answer clear and usually SIMPLE but not EASY.  My observations of management  today is there are way to many looking for EASY.  Could it be that SIMPLE?

Antique Canoe Dealer

For Sale but not by me

I needed business cards because I was tired of writing all my information on scraps of paper. Our training company, when fully developed, will operate under the name of TriCept, LLC. So we have a name and logo for the card but I still needed a title. With a little tongue in cheek, Casper suggested the title of “‘Antique Canoe Dealer.”

Why is that so funny? Well, it the only reference that can be found of my existence in the T.G.I. Friday’s website. If you haven’t heard, I founded Friday’s. But even better than that, I invented Potato Skins!  Personally, I think it’s rather humorous and speaks volumes that I’m considered a world-renowned Antique Canoe Dealer. Frankly, I wouldn’t bring it up here but I have been handing out a lot of business cards  and didn’t want to start getting orders for antique canoes!
