Elements of Simplicity

Just book marking Elements of Simplicity have to think about this for a few minutes.. Funny how the trailing slide is a 2x2 matrix turn 45’ to make it a “diamond”.

The Grid is:

Cost — [lower … higher]

Benefit — [ lower … higher]

Giving these key points:

  • 0,0 — frustration (low benefit, high cost)
  • 0,1 — contentment (high benefit, high cost)
  • 1,0 — concession (low cost, low benefit)
  • 1,1 — delight (low cost, high benefit)
  • 0.5, 0.5 — satisfaction

Of course there were 6 elements:

  • Time
  • Money
  • Physical Effort
  • Brain Cycles
  • Social Deviance
  • Non-Routine [we like routine]

Thinking about this and my Xside ideas…  maybe life in general.
