Words I Live By:
- Where there is freedom and ability, boredom is a side-effect of laziness.
- Defining goals is defining success and as you are the only person that can define what you desire, you are the only person who can define your success.
- Those who draw will be better at seeing, and those who write will better understand.
- By removing the unnecessary, you emphasize, highlight, and clarify what's left.
- Because our desire to learn influences how much we learn, it is important to sustain our curiosity in all aspects of life.
- To avoid miscommunication you must avoid assuming that your audience perceives things as you do, and define your terms as you understand them.
- To create is to bring something into existence that hadn't existed before and therefore all living things are creators.
- The habitual nature of norms make them seem rational even if they are not.
- The three motives for design are (1) the idea, (2) the form, and (3) the balancing of both idea and form.
- Ideas that spread, scale, and endure are based on universal principles.
- Love is acknowledging someone else; acknowledging their life, their emotions, opinions, thoughts, wants, needs and goals-and caring enough to be interested and invested in what is them.
- The power of an idea is measured by it's ability to be communicated
- Vision is seeing what is, what could be, and what will be.
- Doing great work is not solely a matter of craft, it is also the overcoming of fear.
- An audience will remember something but not everything.
