I read this great FastCo article about 4 Bullet points that Seth gave in a talk to Creatives on how to do Design that matters. I personally feel that, these are great points for even non-creatives. For that matter, these are great for anybody who ‘produces’ as part of their job. And yes, I count software lines of code as production. I count efficient management of projects as production too.
The four points are:
- Do it in purpose
- Tell stories that resonate with those in charge
- Demand responsibility, and do not worry at all about authority.
- Reflect credit but embrace blame.
I agree with all of these points a 100%. I have actually practiced some of these points in different points in time in my career, and they _work_.
Seth apparently ended the talk with a great quote:
“I have no doubt the people in this room are going to succeed. The question is: Are you going to matter?”
Love the quote.
