L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N

Keep your mind set, keep your head home, keep your heart strong, keep your head up.

The issue of craft is the difference between good and great. When you go from good to great, there’s this element of delight and magic that has to happen in design… That’s where great design comes from — great design changes us. We smile, we laugh.

Fantastic Design Matters conversation with Maria Guidice, director of product design at Facebook and author of Rise of the DEO: Leadership by Design.

Giudice’s full conversation with Debbie Millman is well worth the listen.

[There is more light than world.] The poet, smiling,
Takes his soft lines and bends them till they meet.
— Les Murray, from “Tableau in January” (via the-final-sentence)
Design is a function of connection. There is nothing more vulnerable than creativity, and what is art if it’s not love?

Brené Brown, author of Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead, on creativity, vulnerability, and how to handle your critics.

Or, as Neil Gaiman memorably put it:

When things get tough, this is what you should do: Make good art. I’m serious. Husband runs off with a politician — make good art. Leg crushed and then eaten by a mutated boa constrictor — make good art. IRS on your trail — make good art. Cat exploded — make good art. Someone on the Internet thinks what you’re doing is stupid or evil or it’s all been done before — make good art. Probably things will work out somehow, eventually time will take the sting away, and that doesn’t even matter. Do what only you can do best: Make good art. 

Pair with Brown on the difference between empathy and sympathy and a lesson in handling haters from Ben Franklin
