From Complexity Has to Live Somewhere:

Complexity has to live somewhere. If you embrace it, give it the place it deserves, design your system and organisation knowing it exists, and focus on adapting, it might just become a strength.

Great take on managing complexity. Instantly reminds me of Rich Hickey’s excellent talk, Simple Made Easy where he discusses simplicity and complexity in software and how complexity does not necessarily mean something is complicated (to understand). Rich’s talk has stuck with me and I imagine this post will too. The entire post (and Rich’s talk) are well worth a read/listen.
