Your ideas don’t make you special. Realizing them does.

There is greatness in all of us and good ideas come from anywhere and anyone. Your great ideas don’t make you special. Realizing them does. Point being that people who stop at nothing to make it happen just so happen to make it.

David Kelley Objectified Quote

Bad design is where the customer thinks it’s their fault that something doesn’t work. So if you can’t make your GPS device work in your car — I mean, there should be a riot because they’re so poorly designed! Instead, the user thinks, ‘Oh, I’m not very smart, I can’t make this GPS thing work.’ People should demand more from the things they own, they need to demand that things work.

Where do you want to go?

Never look where you’re going. Always look where you want to go.

Do, do, DO!

Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.

Will Rogers

I don’t believe in circumstances

People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them.

George Bernard Shaw


The world is mud-luscious and puddle wonderful.
E.E. Cummings


Amidst the attention given to the sciences as how they can lead to the cure of all diseases and daily problems of mankind, I believe that the biggest breakthrough will be the realization that the arts, which are conventionally considered ‘useless,’ will be recognized as the whole reason why we ever try to live longer or live more prosperously.

I believe in luck

I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it. Thomas Jefferson
