Simple is better

Today I attended a football game and unfortunately our local team (Bengals) lost to their division rivals (Steelers), and as sour that it is to stomach the loss, there is a big lesson I witnessed in the last seconds of the game: big problems sometimes require simple solutions.

While many of us in the stands were waiting for a big play from the quarterback to any wide receiver who could catch the ball in the end zone with only fifteen seconds in the game clock, the visiting team executed a short pass to the inside in a crossing route using a screen, and the receiver pretty much ran the remaining yards through the center of the defense (untouched) for the winning touchdown.

Sometimes we over-complicate things, but going back to basic solutions can be the answer to big problems.

They did it. The got the win. The deserve it!
