Confusion’s best mate is Complexity.
Clarity’s best mate is Curiosity.
Luckily, Complexity and Curiosity are friends, too.
When you need to explain a complex idea with clarity, I’d suggest you invite Curiosity to the party, too, as she can help connect Complexity and Clarity.
Do not make the mistake of introducing All-at-once to Complexity, as the two will immediately start nerding so deeply about their expertise that it will lead others to quickly feel overwhelmed. Everyone else will get bored, roll their eyes, and tune out – except for Confusion, of course, who gets a kick out of it.
Curiosity, on the other hand, is a brilliant conversation starter that gets everyone involved. She has such a great intuition for what excites the others that it feels effortless for the group to dive from layer to layer of each and every detail. The deeper the conversation goes, the more Clarity will open up and engage in the discussion.
The best part: Curiosity just never gets tired of parties.
Why not invite her to your party, too? Curiosity would love to introduce Clarity to Complexity for you.
