Clarity About What Matters

Clarity about what matters gives clarity to what doesn’t matter. The goal is to know what’s in front of us and then subtract.

Our work often requires us to compile a lot of data/evidence/proof/details. The trick is to have the skill to not only gather it all but then to pare back what to actually present.

That’s the magic formula: know how to add it all up, then ask the opposite question (“invert!“), and finally, subtract anything inessential.
