“Someone started taking notes, Steve said, 'You don't need to takes notes. If it's important, you'll remember it'.”
Leander Kahney, Inside Steve's Brain

“The thing is, it’s very easy to be different, but very difficult to be better.”
Leander Kahney, Jony Ive: The Genius Behind Apple's Greatest Products

“When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they’ve had more experiences or they have thought more about their experiences than other people. . . . Unfortunately, that’s too rare a commodity. A lot of people in our industry haven’t had very diverse experiences. So they don’t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have.”
Leander Kahney, Inside Steve's Brain
