How to Become a Master

Anything complex is part of the problem, anything simple is part of the solution. 
John McCarthy

This also aligns with the Principal of Parsimony; choose the simplest scientific explanation that fits the evidence.

We often get caught up in thinking that the more complex the problem, or the behaviour that we want to teach, the more complex the plan has to be.  But that really is not the case.  The foundations are what make everything else strong.  If you have weak foundations you can, at best, build a shack (that might not last long).  If you have solid foundations you can build palaces that last hundreds of years.  When the building gets shaky check your foundations.

A Master is simply an expert in the basics.  Professor Jésus Rozalez-Ruiz, University of North Texas.
