193. Produce

The pressure to produce leads to the worst product many times.

Take your time and do your best. But don’t take too long.

192. Difference: Smell

When guys wear clothes all day, they stink. When women do, their clothes still smell good. It’s a mystery.

191. Lashing Out

When you desire to do something but aren’t currently able, lashing out is a sure sign of hurt, jealousy, and frustration.

190. Look Within

When you notice lack in someone else’s life, improve that same area in yourself first before you talk with them.

189. Quotes: Dieter Rams on His Ten Principles of Good Design

Ten Principles of Good Design by Dieter Rams:

Good design is innovative.
Good design makes a product useful.
Good design is aesthetic.
Good design helps us to understand a product.
Good design is unobtrusive.
Good design is honest.
Good design is durable.
Good design is consequent to the last detail.
Good design is concerned with the environment.
Good design is as little design as possible.

188. Blinkers

Always. No excuses.

187. Turning Right

Don’t swing wide to turn right. Stay in your lane.

186. Choosing to Change is Normal

Just because something is labeled genetic does not mean it is good, correct, or normal. Many genetic things are targeted for change. The entire healthcare profession is predicated on this goal.

Choice and the free will are the wrenches in the gears of the nature-versus-nurture debate.

185. Extreme Examples

When debating, it is an illegal move to use an extreme example to represent or support a normal scenario. Don’t do it and don’t allow it against your argument. Call it out immediately.

184. Genetics

Genetics cannot be blamed or thanked for your choices or actions. In other words, the free will is neither a chemical reaction nor is it related to protein combinations.

You take the blame when you do wrong.
