Hi Kasey,

I'm a big fan of Ogilvy, but I think the problem most people have with great ideas is that they fail to understand these these can also be very simple. Anyway, often execution is the most important step.

Very good point, Heather. Simplicity really is part of many "big ideas" - I believe Ogilvy even writes about that various times. The best ideas are often the ones that are right under our noses, but we expect them to be complex, so we look in all the wrong places.

Thanks for checking out the article!
