Simplifying Problems

While thinking about a piece of user experience that just wasn’t lending itself to the “right” solution no matter the approaches, I wished, what if I were to just not have to solve it? Following that line of thinking, I finally arrived on an experience that was much better. How? By not having to deal with it. Well, at least not having to deal with it in that stage of the user experience. I still had to solve it but the problem became much easier by moving it elsewhere.

When solving problems, many will often become much simpler if you just question and eliminate the underlying (often misguided) assumptions. Complexity of a problem drops to 0 if you don’t have to solve it 🙂
