Design is Really How It Works
Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things.
Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it’s really how it works.
Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected.
If a user is having a problem, it's our problem.
Everyone here has the sense that right now is one of those moments when we are influencing the future.
The only way to do great work is to love what you do.
That’s been one of my mantras — focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.
Intuition is a very powerful thing, more powerful than intellect, in my opinion.
