You can only avoid regret by switching off your imagination, by refusing to consider how things might have been.

When a thoughtless or unkind word is spoken, best tune out. Reacting in anger or annoyance will not advance one’s ability to persuade.

So many of the designers that we interview don’t know how to make stuff. Because workshops in design schools are expensive and computers are cheaper. A computer rendering can make a really dreadful design look palatable.

That’s just tragic, that you can spend four years of your life studying the design of three dimensional objects and not make one. It’s great if the ultimate result was to be a graphic image, that’s fine. But how on earth can you do that if what you’re responsible to produce is a three dimensional object?

Good inventors and designers deeply understand their customer. They spend tremendous energy developing that intuition. They study and understand many anecdotes rather than only the averages you’ll find on surveys. They live with the design. I’m not against beta testing or surveys. But you, the product or service owner, must understand the customer, have a vision, and love the offering. Then, beta testing and research can help you find your blind spots. A remarkable customer experience starts with heart, intuition, curiosity, play, guts, taste. You won’t find any of it in a survey.

People sometimes ask me, “If things are so bad, why don’t you just kill yourself?” The answer is that life is really, really good. I am a complex enough being that I can hold in my heart the understanding that we are really, really fucked, and at the same time that life is really, really good. I am full of rage, sorrow, joy, love, hate, despair, happiness, satisfaction, dissatisfaction, and a thousand other feelings. We are really fucked. Life is still really good.

We don’t have an ethical framework for the creation of technology. Doctors have “first do no harm” and journalists have “speak truth to power” and coders have…"move fast and break things".
