2 leaders' philosophies

Countdowns are awesome. Regardless whether you do it during a competition or during writing online articles: the same feeling of anxiety is there. Before writing this article, i read all my previous articles. On August 24th, I started with 8 things I learned about winners, then i continued with:

- 7 battles worth winning,

- 6 happy habits,

- 5 living heroes,

- 4 basic Qs you need to ask,

- and the latest one 3: Winners vs. Leaders.

Being close to the end of the countdown, i realize there are so many things i didn’t mention or grasp, but at the same time, so many things i learned in this process. I hope it was a nice journey for all of you, too. My next week article will be on 1 thing that all aspiring leaders or winners should never forget and it will consist of one image and one song. Today, I will explain 2 leaders’ philosophies i find utmostly important and repeatedly confirmed.

1. The philosophy of delegating

Delegate the right job to the right person at the right time. For more useful insights into this topic please read Izaac Adizes’s blog on “How to delegate”.

2. KISS philosophy

KISS is an acronym for the design principle articulated by Kelly Johnson, Keep it simple, stupid!. Variations include "keep it stupid simple", "keep it short and simple", "keep it simple sir", "keep it super simple", "keep it simple or be stupid", "keep it simple and stupid", "keep it simple and straightforward" or "keep it simple and sincere.” The KISS philosophy states that most systems work best if they are kept simple rather than made complex, therefore simplicity should be a key goal in design and unnecessary complexity should be avoided.

So, all of you young and growing winners and leaders out there, enjoy and practice delegation and kiss-ing :)

Bistra, great share again and I think everyone who followed you in the past period found your articles very amusing, outstanding and learnt something new! :)
As for Keep-it-Simple, I would only add that sometimes it happens for things/systems of functioning to be complex and people are afraid of complexities; however we should not be afraid of complexities; after a while what is complex simplifies itself; meaning I believe that the human mind is able to master the system no matter how complex it is and a great leader should be able to do that, to master the system whether more or less complex; once mastered it can be simplified :)

Thank you and cheers!

Haha.... very interesting, creative and funny but on a serious note, keep things simple and take things one step at a time.

Absolutely phenomenal Bistra :-) It's true that WE CAN DO ANYTHING BUT NOT EVERYTHING. Everything here in this world is supposed to do its part =)
and no "words" for KISS, :-)

Peace be with you!

I am glad to notice that you like kiss- ing so much :) :) :)
While writing this article, i was thinking of all the beautiful complexities in nature and in us. So keep it simple is a good philosophy, but also it is important to recognize the beauty in everything. I put it simple, didn't I? :)
