Simple is best! The KISS principle (Keep It Simple Stupid) is supposedly a goal of many. Is simplicity itself really an appropriate goal? A simple document or plan may sound admirable, but what you really want is simplicity in result. Document: A short will may be simple, but might create a myriad of problems if the unexpected occurs. On the other hand, a comprehensive will requires more time to prepare, discuss and understand. But if the unexpected occurs and the situation is dealt with adequately, simplicity in result occurs. Plan: One dimensional planning might be simple, but can often fail to achieve your goals.
