Yesterday I learned a lesson from my team mate.
We were trying to come out with a solution to a problem we’ve been facing. Initially I was searching all over the web and downloading software to test. We also discussed about writing our own software to solve the problem.
In the end, he suggested that we go back to the basics. Instead of getting the most fancy tools, we could do the same thing with a basic calendar app.
My natural tendency when faced with any problem is to find the most advanced, high tech solution. I guess in my mind, whatever is newest must be good right? But I’m glad I learned that is not always the truth.
Sometimes the most simple solution might get the job done. I look forward to applying this concept in my daily job from now on.
