Rework Wisdom – Don’t Remove the Poetry

Pare down to the essence, but don’t remove the poetry.

(Rework, pg. 182)

Poetry. Many of us think of poetry as fluff, pretty decoration that isn’t necessary because “pretty” isn’t efficient. But I believe that business needs poetry too. Poetry speaks to the “why” in us…to what motivates us, inspires us, moves us, ultimately keeps us determined to persevere through the days when we just want to quit. At some point, productivity & efficiency will become ineffective without poetry.


Have you found a way to master simplicity without sacrificing poetry?

This post is part of our Rework Wisdom series. If you haven’t read “Rework” by Jason Fried I suggest you put it on your short list of “books to be read.” It’s phenomenally simple, practical, & profound all at the same time.
