Products fulfilling a purpose are like tools. They are neither decorative objects nor works of art. Their design should therefore be both neutral and restrained, to leave room for the users self-expression.
Good product design gets out of the way of revealing to the user the core value propositions that the product has.
Good product design has no gold plating. No extraneous stuff that takes the user away from the main purpose of the product.
Good product design in unobtrusive in that the product ensures the user makes full use of the most important features in the product.
We know in product development, over 70% of features are rarely or if ever used.
Think on this. What % of microsoft excel do you use? Probably a half a percent of a percent.
There is too much bloatware. To much vapor ware. Too much crap attached to products today that detract from the overall usefulness of the product, and detract from the core purpose of the product.
That is what a good blockchain designed life is all about. Focus. Being unobtrusive to yourself.
We tend to de-focus ourselves. We tend to take ourselves into sideways energy. We tend to spend time and energy in things that do not help us move towards our goals.
The output of a blockchain designed life is a life of fluid functionality. A life where you are driving towards a goal, you are making it happen, day by day. You are on a mission.
What I find so fascinating about this is there is a paradox within this dedicated and disciplined lifestyle: Within a disciplined lifestyle, the truest form of YOU can shine.
I look at it this way. Look at the celebrities of our day. They are full of glamor, shine, and aesethetics that make them look awesome. But deep down inside, many of them are dying. A slow death. They aren’t true to themselves, they have put so much marketing and shine on their lives that it blocks out the real them!
The truest form of self is a life that is well crafted and well disciplined. Only then, can you truly express who you really are.
Many focus on looking good and beutifying up the “image” they want the world to see.
What they fail to realize is that beautifying up their “image” to the world… they actually block out the real them.
A blockchain designed is a life that enables you to get out of the way of YOURSELF.
A blockchain designed life is one what does not obstruct yourself from the mission and vision of your life.
A blockchain designed life is one that leaves room for true self-expression, through a mastery of self.
