The More Words You Need, The Less You Understand

The best way to understand if someone really knows what they’re talking about, is to ask them to explain it to you in as few a words as possible.

Generally speaking, the less words you need to explain it, th edeeper you understand it.

Not necessarily ‘deeper’ in terms of your technically knowledge of the subject.

But ‘deeper’ in terms of how widely you understand it.

That may initially seem like a contradiction.

But it is in the depth and breadth that the real value and impact can be unlocked.
