YESTERDAY’S post was Leadership IS Creativity.

Shortly afterwards I saw the post: “There Are A thousand Noes For Every Yes“, over at Alesandra Blakeson’s User Friendly blog, featuring a great short clip from Apple (re-posted below).

I wish everyone who designs anything, understood this:


Any act of creativity is ultimately an act of design.  Even a work of art has a purpose, and anything with a purpose needs to be designed with that purpose in mind.

In leadership, and in life, we humans need to be creating what should be; what could be.  And whether creating a meal, a production process, a better car, a new label, a recruiting protocol, a film, a lesson, whatever; creating the good requires good design.


Here’s Apple’s take, a beautifully designed presentation of a great design philosophy.
