At some point in a remote meeting, depending on the complexity of the topic, not everyone is going to get it. That’s life, it’s going to happen.

You can sit there trying to explain it for the fifth time or you can pull up the crappiest, most basic Paint program and draw it out for them.

I swear, I have pulled up Visio, Figma, different drawing programs, UML diagrams, etc, etc – sometimes they work, sometimes they miss the point.

But that crappiest, default Paint program installed by default on whatever OS you are on, never seems to fail – people get it – they forget the perfection and focus on the function.

And that’s what you need.
