There is always time to do more. Most people, even the productive, have a day that is at least forty percent slack.

Do the most important things first in the day and don’t let anybody stop you.

Estimate “most important” using a zero discount rate. Don’t make exceptions. The hours from 7 to 12 are your time to build for the future before the world descends on you.

Evolution of Spacecraft Design

A look at the evolution of cockpit and controls design over the last 45 years from Apollo to Discovery to Dragon V2.

If you make a product good enough, even though you live in the depths of the forest, the public will make a path to your door, says the philosopher. But if you want the public in sufficient numbers, you better construct a highway.

Lanyrd: from idea to exit - the story of our startup

It is not easy. It may well not be the right path for you. If you choose to do a startup make sure you know the risks and you are doing it for the right reasons.

Build something you care about.
Build something that makes peoples lives better. 
Build something that will motivate you against all odds.

Embrace serendipity. Grab all the opportunities you can, work harder than you have ever worked, make your own luck but do look after yourself first. Eat right, sleep decent hours and try to get as much of a work / life balance as you can.

- Natalie Downe

Advice For Designers
