"It just takes this to do that": Oh, really?

Have you noticed? Those words that slipped in?


“Ooh, to do that, it just takes …”

Have you noticed? Those words that slipped in? Yes, the “just takes”.

This term is your worst enemy.

By using it, we hide great complexity in a black box.

And when it’s finally time to open this box, we quickly realize our mistake of not making it more transparent before.

As a general rule, I always try to be attentive during conversations to these words, and I try to use them as little as possible!
