Simplicity: The Key to Design, Writing, and the Church

Simplicity is the key to most things in life. People have the tendency to cram too much stuff in their design projects, their writing, and even their church schedule. There is a fine line between too little and too much.

Designers need to include more white space, writers need to remove at least 10% on the re-write, preachers could cut 10 minutes from their sermons and the congregation wouldn't miss it, and churches could cut programs and improve their effectiveness.

This video from YouTube is a good example of how much we want to cram into something:
