Simplicity can be defined as:

  • The absence of complication while addressing the underlying issue on hand.
  • The property of a domain which requires very little information to be exhaustively described.
  • A means to achieve maximum effect with minimum means.

In my opinion you are a saint if you tell me you are not a bit stressed.

Positive stress is actually good; it is the negative stress that is the problem.  Excessive stress is a guaranteed ticket to ill-health, and in extreme cases, even death.

Positive stress can help in:

  • Motivating a person
  • Facilitating hard work
  • Feeling of contentment for goals accomplished
  • Placing the environment in a positive mood - people and organizations that you interact with are left happy.

But what happens when you are negatively stressed? I am sure you do pass it around, without even knowing it! 

"If I just read this book 'n' times, will I pass the exam?"

"I have spent considerable amount of time going through the glossary definitions.  Am I prepared for the exam?"

"Why are these questions not straight (forward)?"

"This question appears to be out-of-syllabus!"

"None of the answer options match the definitions that I read from the book!"

"Will I get direct questions in the exam?"

These are some of the questions candidates preparing to write PMI exams, such as the PMP* or PMI-ACP have.  I am sure you would too if you were planning on taking up these certification exams.  I get asked about this all the time.

One of the common questions that PMP certification aspirants have is – “is it sufficient if I just read the PMBOK for the PMP exam?”

Most professional certifications require the certified professional to contribute, learn and improve their domain knowledge.  This is a part of the condition to maintain validity on their certification.  This is the basis for Continuing Education.
