“When you first start off trying to solve a problem, the first solutions you come up with are very complex, and most people stop there. But if you keep going, and live with the problem and peel more layers of the onion off, you can often times arrive at some very elegant and simple solutions. Most people just don’t put in the time or energy to get there.” Steve Jobs, now in the sixth year of his departure from earth.
By getting Apple to focus on making just four computers, he saved the company. “Deciding what not to do is as important as deciding what to do,” he told me. “That’s true for companies, and it’s true for products.” Says Walter Isaacson, in “Steve Jobs,” Isaacson’s biography of the Apple founder.
Overcoming complexity rather than ignoring it was one of Steve’s greatest strengths. “It takes a lot of hard work,” he said, “to make something simple, to truly understand the underlying challenges and come up with elegant solutions.”
During the design of the iPod interface, Jobs tried at every meeting to find ways to cut clutter. At one point Jobs made the simplest of all suggestions: removing the on/off button. At first, the team members were taken aback, but then they realized the button was unnecessary. The device would gradually power down if it wasn’t being used and would spring to life when reengaged.
