I’ve been in a writing drought lately. I get up every morning and sit down to my computer. Words get typed into the screen. But they aren’t as good as the words I’m used to writing. They aren’t as good as they could be. I’m not being modest. I know what I’m capable of as a writer, and this is not it.
A few days ago, my family and I returned home after a two-month long road trip. On the way back, my husband Kyle and I had our customary debriefing conversation per easing back in to normal life: What was your favorite part of the trip? What did you learn? What makes you excited to head back home? What makes you not so excited?
(We’re not really very formal about this—we just ask each other questions off the top of our heads while the kids go nuts in the back seats.)
The truth is people aren’t drawn to truth, they’re drawn to simplicity. Recent research from Harvard suggests that customers don’t necessarily buy the best products, they buy the products that are the easiest to understand and the easiest to purchase.
