Saying “No” however isn’t just healthy, it’s necessary. The path to success is paved in thousands of tiny No’s. Behind every inspired design is a graveyard of early iterations and averted feature creep. Only through stripping products down to their most essential elements can we focus on doing fewer things better.
Great Question of the Week from Julie Zhuo’s The Looking Glass newsletter, in which Julie talks about when and how it’s appropriate to say “no.” I’m just catching up on my email from this past week’s WordCamp Europe / Community Summit trip to Paris, and this one caught my eye. If you’re a design professional, be sure to give it a read.
