  • 1.
    • Design matters - attention to detail; it's more than the "veneer," the outside aesthetic. It's how the product makes you feel.
    • Sometimes you have to be tough to get the best work out of people. Coddling them doesn't help them and doesn't prepare them for the world. Set high standards and stay committed to them. They might not realize it at the time, but they will thank you later.
    • Consumer research - forget it. People can't tell you what they want if they haven't seen it before. Make things that surprise and delight them.
    • The most innovative, influential inventions are those that are the most surprising and unexpected.
    • Sometimes your ideas are ahead of the game. Don't be discouraged if they aren't immediately accepted. That's normal for anything that is a game changer.

  • 2.
    • Live your best life, find something in which you are passionate. The rest will follow. Don't settle.
    • Make things. Lots of things. Don't wait for someone to tell you to do it.
    • If you make things that make people feel better about themselves, things that inspire confidence, creativity and joy, then you are doing something important.
    • Your failures define you as much as your successes. It's how you respond to those failures, what you learn, that matters.
    • The marriage of technology and liberal arts. It's not about either separately. It's the way we integrate them that touches our souls.
    • You don't have to be a great technologist, designer, engineer, communicator, business person, to be a visionary and to have a profound effect. You have to understand culture and human nature. Being any of those things is great, but sometimes you have to see the intersections, the whole.
