Transcript of The Big Ideas Journal

from the Thriveal CPA Network The Big Ideas Journal 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. The design of the Mac wasn't what it looked like, although that was
part of it. Primarily, it was how it worked. To design something really well, you have
to get it. You have to really grok what it's all about. It takes a passionate commitment to really thoroughly understand something, chew it up, not just quickly swallow it. Most people don't take the time to do that.

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. And the reason they were able to do that was that they've had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people.

Unfortunately, that's too rare a commodity. A lot of people in our industry haven't had very diverse experiences. So they don't have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one's understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have.
