La passion c’est de faire beaucoup de choses.

The other day I land on this phrase (passion is about doing a lot of things). Then I begun to gave some thought about it as it didn’t sound right the first time I read it, or even the second or third time!

Everything about passion or being passionate touch me in some ways and I did wonder if this phrase could be true, at least for me. Can it be that passion is about doing a lot of things? Really?

I often said that I don’t have a single passion as some people do (where they invest all their time and effort into - I truly admire them for it), but that I have many little passions (6 of them as the name of this site suggests). Passions that many may simply qualified as continuous interests as I don’t invest tremendous effort or time into each of them.

Then I begun to think if that quote was not or part of the explanation for it. I like doing those passions or interests, mainly because they keep me active, not busy, but actively creative. My passion is a sum of interests that keeps me into a momentum, a wheel of creative sparks that pushes me continuously forward.

Design is how it works. If you were only hiring a designer to make your app pretty, you were already focused on the wrong problem.

Leonardo DaVinci was a loser

If you want to understand why you need a minimum of 10 000 hours OR MORE to get expert at something… Watch this. This is beyond GOOD.

Any point of friction in your day to day life is an opportunity for Google. It’s not any one preconceived thing, but a wide, opportunist infrastructure that can constantly conform to your life.

When that truly is your reason for coming into the studio, is just to try to make the very best product you can, when that is exclusive of everything else, it’s remarkable how insignificant or unimportant a lot of other stuff becomes. Titles or organizational structures, that’s not the lens through which we see our peers.

Deadmau5 - Phamtoms Can’t Hang

Tomorrow it is the release of the 7th album of Joel Zimmerman, and I truly wonder if it would not be his most epic to date.
