Excessively Minimal

Michael Schechter:

Give it a try, but be careful not to take minimalism on as some kind of rigid underlying philosophy rather than what it really is, a resulting aesthetic of getting yourself organized. Don’t let yourself obsess on less for less sake, you’re often missing the true potential of a minimal approach: getting the unnecessary out of the way in order to let the important take center stage.

One of the cool things about simplifying and minimizing is the important automatically and naturally crystallize as more and more unnecessary things are banished.
