Learning to simplify is probably the most valuable skill I've picked up over the years. The question "How can this be made simpler?" has served me extremely well. Particularly, as you say, when communicating -- be it in code or even just an email. I often think of the Blaise Pascal quote: I'm sorry I wrote you such a long letter; I didn't have time to write a short one.

I love Mark Twain wisdom, regardless how how deep it's threaded in any comments section ❤️ (It's also the story of my life)
Kudos for digging this far into the comments, Erik! It's a fantastic quote ... even if I'm never sure who it's attributed to. (I'm sure at least one source will say it came from Albert Einstein.)
