"I have learned an important principle: simple things work, often to our dumbfounded surprise, for we tend to distrust the simple and strive for the complex."

When Richard saw this on the 37Signals site it just struck a chord, taking him back to the reasons why he decided to build Moneyscope. Richard had tried and tested lots of complicated ways to do cash flow forecasts and, following many conversations with advisers whose clients just wanted get straight to the point, decided to take the leap and develop Moneyscope. It seems that others like this approach but every now and then people just put the perfect words to the notion and that's why this quote rang true.
