Idea of "keeping it simple, stupid!"
This week on the show, we spoke with folks involved with Comrade Center, a leftist project focused on accessible education around armed self-defense in so-called New Hampshire. They were formerly known as South New England Socialist Rifle Association and while they're no longer a chapter of the SRA, they are working with groups like that and individuals to purchase and maintaining a space for armed self-defense education outside of the right wing milieu in their area. For the hour we talk about mainstream, reactionary gun culture in the US, the impact of the NRA, the importance and empowerment of education around fire arms and other topics.

Contact me at www.BobGalletta.com/call KISS, an acronym for Keep It Simple Stupid, is a design principle noted by the US Navy in 1960. The KISS principle states that most systems work best if they are kept simple rather than made complicated; therefore, simplicity should be a key goal in design, and unnecessary complexity should be avoided. […]
KISS è l'acronimo di “Keep it simple, stupid!” ed è un principio nato nell'ambito della progettazione informatica come esortazione a mantenere semplice e lineare la soluzione ad un problema di programmazione, anziché cercare di complicare le cose fin dal principio con soluzioni astruse.KISS sarà anche il topic di discussione della 117esima puntata del podcast Ospitalità 4.0, dove Edoardo e Marco cercheranno di capire come rendere semplici, fin da subito, alcuni processi di gestione alberghiera. https://www.slope.it/2021/06/25/kiss-keep-it-simple-stupid-podcast-ep-117/

Tacheles & Tee mit Susann und Inge – Was bedeutet dieser „Slogan“ aus dem Coachingbereich eigentlich genau? Wir schauen uns im Alltag um, was es bedeutet, das eigene Leben zu vereinfachen. Wie Werbung und Reizüberflutung uns manipuliert.

The Building Hotrodders pick back up where they left off in the discussion of simplicity in todays high tech facilities. We take the conversation in a different direction than the previous episode and dive into simplicity with BMS, programming, and system security. All of these aspects carry an inherent degree of complexity, but to function properly there must be an amount of simplicity. Sounds confusing right? Tune in to hear how our experts break this discussion down and make what can be very complex......simple.

Follow the 10-20-30 Rule for great presentations. Have you ever heard of the 10-20-30 Rule? It’s more often called the 10/20/30 Rule of PowerPoint, but the principle applies elsewhere as well. This Rule was coined several years ago by Guy Kawasaki, a venture capitalist who sat through dozens of presentation pitches regularly. It was his job to listen to people pitch their business ideas, and after years of this, he noted that the best presentations, the ones that are more likely to close the deal, all followed a similar format, which he coined the 10-20-30 Rule. And this Rule is simple. • 10 Slides • 20 Minute Presentation • 30 Point minimum size font. That’s it. According to Kawasaki, this setup gives you the best chance to impact the person or people you’re presenting positively. Kawasaki was talking about people pitching business ideas to venture capitalists. But the same principle applies to you, a designer pitching your ideas to clients. Let’s break it down the 10-20-30 Rule. Rule #1: 10 Slides. Kawasaki pointed out that it’s tough for someone to comprehend more than ten concepts in a meeting. If you try, you’re more than most likely to confuse them. Follow the KISS principle (Keep It Simple Stupid.) Limiting your presentation to only 10 slides or 10 sheets or pages does just that. Break your presentation down into 10 points, one per slide. Maybe something like this. • Slide 1: Your interpretation of who the client is. • Slide 2: Identifying the client’s competition. • Slide 3: The Problem the client is facing. • Slide 4: The Solution you are proposing. • Slide 5: How your solution solves the client’s problem. • Slide 6: Examples of your solution in place. • Slide 7: Projections and outcomes from Implementing your solution. • Slide 8: Timeline for the project. • Slide 9: Cost of the project. • Slide 10: Summary and call to action. This example uses a maximum of 10 slides, but you can do it in less, then all the better. Rule #2: 20 Minutes. It doesn’t matter if you are allotted 30 minutes or an hour. Your actual presentation should take no more than 20 minutes. If you can’t present your idea within that time frame, you’re doing something wrong. Have you heard of TED Talks? Did you know that TED Talks have a maximum length of 18 minutes? TED organizers chose this time length based on neuroscience research that says 18 minutes is long enough for a speaker to flesh out their idea and short enough for a listener to take it in, digest what they are hearing, and understand all of the vital information. Not only that, but they know that shorter presentations require you to edit things down to the most important and relevant material. If you have more time allotted to you, use it for introductions and setting up your equipment. You should also leave time for Q&A after your presentation. Plus, you never know when an emergency might arise and cut the meeting short. 20 minutes is the ideal time to keep someone’s interest in what you are showing them. Longer than 20 minutes, and you risk their mind wandering to other things and possibly missing critical points you’re trying to make. Rule #3: 30-Pt Font. As a designer, I trust you know that slides or presentation papers are most effective when they contain very little wording. I’m hoping I don’t have to explain that to you. This 10-20-30 Rule was written for people pitching a product or business idea, not for experienced designers. But just the same, it’s something to remember when you create your presentation slides or handouts. Using a larger point size forces you to cut back on unnecessary verbiage. The only reason to have a smaller type on a slide is to cram on more text. But by doing so, your client may think you’re not familiar with your material and that you need your slides to act as a teleprompter. And that, in turn, may make them feel like you are not invested in them. Not to mention, the more type you have on a slide, the more the client will focus on reading it and not listening to what you’re saying. You know what I mean, we’ve all done it before—reading ahead while ignoring the presenter. Avoid this by using 30 point or larger fonts. Forget the bullet list and instead, tell your clients the key points. It will mean much more coming out of your mouth than words on a screen or sheet of paper. As a comparison, Steve Jobs, a great presenter in his time, insisted on a 96-point type on all his presentation slides. If it’s good enough for a multi-billion company, it should be good enough for you. Bonus As a bonus to his 10-20-30 Rule, Guy Kawasaki also said that the most persuasive presentations he’s sat through, typically used white type on a black or dark coloured background. The way he puts it is, anyone can put black type on a white background. It’s the default in all programs. However, white type on a dark background is something you have to conscientiously, and shows that you’ve put effort into your presentation. Not to mention that white type on a dark background looks classier and is easier to read. Don’t believe me? Think of movie credits. How often do you see black credits on a white background? Hardly ever. You can learn from that. Do you follow the 10-20-30 Rule? Let me know by leaving a comment for this episode. Tip of the week Capture Full-Screen websites on your iPhone.

In this episode the Building Hotrodders discuss the importance of simplicity in systems design. As they saying goes "just because you can, doesn't mean you should". We cover this in detail and provide some specific examples of where things were not kept simple.......or practical, along with the problems that occurred because of it. This discussion is relevant over a broad field of applications (mechanical systems, networks, HVAC, BMS, etc), and we do our best to cover as many as possible, in as simple of a manner. What the hotrodders may consider simple or complicated may differ from your thoughts and tuning in is the only way to find out!

It’s fair to say that we have all made mistakes in our life. While we hate to make mistakes they help to make us better when we choose to learn from them. In this episode we are sharing two BIG mistakes that we have made when heading back to school. While we share our two mistakes we want you to keep one thing in mind: KISS, Keep It Simple Stupid. Teaching can often feel like a competition instead of a collaboration and while this is not done intentionally, it can manifest in so much that we do for our classroom and for our students. OUR TWO BIGGEST BACK-TO-SCHOOL MISTAKES Mistake 1: Following trends we see on social media. AKA: Keeping up with the Jones’Social media can be a place where innovation rises and new ideas spark excitement and motivation. As we have personally learned, social media can also be a place where new connections are made. However, social media can also cause us to feel pressure and distract us from our true purpose as a teacher. When feeling stressed because of what you are seeing on social media do these things instead:Stay off social mediaRemind yourself that it is easier to add on than to take awayBest teaching practices aren’t always cuteYour teaching ability is not determined by keeping up with the Jones’Teaching is not always about the materials but about the relationships you form Mistake 2: Putting too much on our platesEven when we are already feeling as though we have too much going on we still have a tendency to bring on more tasks. This is mainly because we don’t want to look as though we cannot do “all the things”. This can be from volunteering for activities, trying new things you see on social media or wanting to grow in multiple areas at once. This can lead to burnout and can even add pressures to your loved ones or your students. When feeling as though you are taking too much on do these things instead:Collaborate with other teachers as much as possible (synergy… 1 + 1 = 3)Choose one area to focus on (technology, parent communication, student wellbeing)Start with less and add moreLimit how much you change in one year/at one timePractice self care CONCLUSIONThis year seems to add so much pressure on us with all the changes and adjustments that we are having to make as a teacher. It can be overwhelming and burn you out if you allow it to continue for too long. Remember to take a break away from work and try some of the strategies we mentioned to help ground you to what is really important. SUBSCRIBE & REVIEWAre you subscribed to our podcast?

All links and images for this episode can be found on CISO Series (https://cisoseries.com/we-compensate-our-low-paying-ciso-jobs-with-high-stress/) On this week's episode we're seeking candidates for unrealistically low-paying CISO positions. This episode is hosted by me, David Spark (@dspark), producer of CISO Series and founder of Spark Media Solutions and Mike Johnson. Our guest this week is Nir Rothenberg, CISO, Rapyd. Thanks to this week's podcast sponsor Trend Micro. Trend Micro Incorporated, a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, helps to make the world safe for exchanging digital information. Our innovative solutions for consumers, businesses, and governments provide layered security for data centers, cloud environments, networks, and endpoints. For more information, visit www.trendmicro.com. On this week's episode Why is everyone talking about this now? On LinkedIn, Farhan Khan, a recruiter at CyberApt Recruitment, told a tale of getting a call asking if he could help his company recruit a seasoned CISO for their 300+ person company. He was excited until he found out the salary they were offering the CISO was in the range of $90-$105K. We've talked before about unrealistic CISO salaries before, but this is actually below the rate of entry level cyber positions in the Bay Area. How do CISOs or heck any cybersecurity professional handle someone's unrealistic expectations? Do you say something or just say, "No thank you"? Also, Davi Ottenheimer of Inrupt, brought this story to my attention and argued that high CISO salaries are just attracting fraudsters. Does our panel agree, and if so, what would a company have to be wary of? Mike's Confused. Let’s help him out On previous shows Mike has admitted he would not want to (not confused although that may be part of it) run the IT department. Nir mentioned that he feels that getting out of one's comfort zone is critical, no matter what department you're in. What are the pros and cons of other departments not just being security aware, but taking on cybersecurity responsibilities? And vice versa, cybersecurity taking on other department responsibilities? How far can/should it go? What's Worse?! Too much flexibility or too many restrictions? We’ve got listeners and they’ve got questions Anya Shpilman of Swiss Gulf Partners sent recorded this question: "I'm a recruiter and I specialize in cybersecurity recruitment. At the end of the show everyone says they're hiring. But I have a hard time getting traction from CISOs. So what would you like to see/hear in those initial emails or LinkedIn messages." Go here to record a question to be played on one of our shows. Umm, Is this good idea? I recently published an article on CISO Series entitled "25 API Security Tips You're Probably Not Considering”. The very first tip, from Gary Hayslip, CISO, Softbank Investment Advisers, is K.I.S.S. or Keep It Simple Stupid. I then went on to provide 24 more tips from experts which if you were to deploy them all would in no way be simple. KISS sounds great in theory, but how the heck do you pull it off in practice. Can you point to an example of how you took something that was complicated and simplified it?
This week is the conclusion of my interview with James Wedmore. He dropped a ton of valuable knowledge in part one, so you’ll want to listen to episode 157 if you haven’t yet. Today we’re getting into how he applies the simplicity method not just for creating offers, but also for the other parts of his business. Part two begins with James telling a story about how he began challenging industry standards just because he wanted to mess with people. After talking a bit about earnings per lead, I ask James about how he has defined what an entrepreneur wants to be. At the end of the day, James says it’s all about results. James recently coined a term, “energon cubes,” that refers to how much time and energy something takes to accomplish. He tells us why this had led to his philosophy of doing less while doing better. A lot of time has been freed up for James in his business thanks to this mindset. I ask James why he decided to create Your First 100 Leads, so he proceeds to tell us how the idea first came to him. He began with a simple Venn diagram which he explains to us. Then, James talks about how easily you can be forgotten by leads. We get some parting advice from James before signing off. He says that when you begin to apply the actions we’ve discussed in this episode to your life, that’s when you will see a difference. Knowledge is not a power, it’s a potential power. WHAT YOU’LL LEARN IN TODAY’S EPISODE: The importance of identifying where your time needs to be spent Why you need to be smart with your money, but you need to be even smarter with your time and energy How to simplify your business and yet still to be able to give your audience your best work How shifting your mindset when it comes to your money will transform your business and your life For bonus resources and freebies for this episode, go to: https://bit.ly/3bNbf80
Today’s episode is extra special because I have a special guest with me. It’s an interview with my personal business coach, James Wedmore. Actually, it’s more than just an interview. I had originally streamed this on Facebook Live, and it turned into more of just a discussion between two business guys. We were having fun while talking about the challenges we face. James is going into his fourteenth year of running an online business and begins with a brief overview of what that time has been like. He then speaks to how people tend to overcomplicate their business. I was one of those people and recall how James helped me realize the importance of simplifying. His flagship program, Business by Design, brings entrepreneurs through step-by-step instructions on how to perform several crucial activities. James talks about the reaction that the program has gotten and provides us with several analogies. I then get into why James has a different approach compared to other courses or programs I see. You’ll hear about the requirements of some of James’ programs and the exclusivity of them. He explains the peer-based coaching aspect he employs and reveals some of the surprising results he has seen. Some of these unexpected outcomes have made James particularly fulfilled. James and I discuss why you need to ask yourself the right questions. We team up to give some examples of the questions that will allow you to really grow your business. That’s it for now, but don’t miss the second part of the interview next week! WHAT YOU’LL LEARN IN TODAY’S EPISODE: How a simple design with timeless concepts will help your business thrive The different ways to provide value to your audience How to receive clarity so your business is not running your life What different types of support can be offered and created from one product Why it’s important to attract yourself to other people who have already solved a problem you are facing in your business For bonus resources and freebies for this episode, go to: https://bit.ly/3bET4RQ
This is it - episode #800!! Through all the ups and downs, you’ve journeyed with Scott to (or you just joined us for) another milestone in the life of The Amazing Seller! To mark this special occasion, Scott is taking a moment to take a look back at the journey so far. On this episode, you’ll hear Scott as he explains how he went from the Amazon guy to brand building coach, speaker, and author! It’s worth it after all of the hard work it takes to reach a milestone to reflect on what worked, what didn’t, and what the plan is going forward. Pay close attention, you don’t want to miss a minute of this powerful and celebratory episode! KISS Have you heard of that old saying, KISS? It stands for Keep It Simple Stupid. While that saying doesn’t’ sound very nice, it does cut to the heart of what Scott is trying to do with the TAS brand. For too long, Scott saw sellers like you get really excited about the prospect of becoming their own bosses and starting their own businesses only to have their hopes dashed when they saw how complicated it would be. Following his passion to help average people like him, Scott started TAS to take people on a journey as he started a brand selling products on Amazon. Before long, TAS took off and has since produced workshops, meetups, live events, and so much more. Unfortunately, with growth complexity often comes around to tag along. Getting down to what really matters TAS soon went through a growth phase, offering solution after solution by meeting the needs of the growing seller community. While Scott loved helping sellers improve their businesses with the podcast and other tools, what he really enjoyed was getting to know people and helping them up close. While he never thought he would ever host a conference, Scott did just that in 2019 with the Brand Accelerator Live event. Scratching this itch also involved writing a book, “The Take Action Effect” and launching a new program to help brand creators. Five helpful tips from Scott As you can tell, Scott’s been on quite the journey over the years. Keeping with the spirit of The Amazing Seller and all the wonderful tools he’s developed over the years, Scott also wanted to give you five helpful tips he learned that will help you succeed. Figure out your “Why” - what is it that keeps you motivated in life and business? Be open to adapt and change. Don’t be afraid to make a pivot! Don’t compare yourself to others! The core principles of building a business don’t change. Keep things simple and always remember you “Why!” There you have it!

KISS. Keep It Simple Stupid. I think the average microgym owner is far too wrapped up in their purist route of a performance enhancing program vs what they avatar client they seek actually wants. Kinda like the butcher who is telling you how his Kobe beef, cured, grain fed, pasture raised hamburger is absolutely the best....but you have to cook it this special way that takes 2 hours....and if you don't pair it with this kind of wine, you'll fuck it all up. See the comparison?
I was reflecting in this episode and I found that when we simplify the equation when it comes to weight loss, healthy living, living life to the fullest cleaning out all the baggage and going with the simple way of doing things is the best method.

Why do we tend to overcomplicate business? This is definitely something that I struggle with as well, so in this episode I will be discussing why we need to make simplicity a priority in order to avoid distraction, frustration, and overworking.

Rand is the leading innovator in real estate education and author of Disruptors, Discounters, and Doubters: A Guide for the Client-Oriented Future of the Real Estate Industry. At the heart of our discussion is a question for agents and brokers, "Have I done what I can to ensure the pain points of my clients are met before my own needs?" Those pain points, which Rand identifies and walks through, are key areas of disruption to make or break your value proposition. Listen in to understand how disruptors impact the real estate industry and how to find new opportunities to enhance your value. Rand is the Managing Partner of Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty, one of the largest family-owned real estate brokerages in the country.
