Ockham’s Razor (Keep It Simple)

Occam’s Razor (or Ockham’s Razor) is the principle that “entities must not be multiplied beyond necessity” (entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem). The popular interpretation of this principle is that “the simplest explanation is usually the correct one.”

The razor asserts that one should proceed to simpler theories until simplicity can be traded for a greater explanation.

Trust your gut, it usually picks up on the important things before your brain does. Don’t complicate things & over think them.
