Make me think

  • Signals of interface quality
    “Quality is the degree to which an object or entity (e.g., process, product, or service) satisfies specific attributes or requirements. The quality of something can be determined by comparing a set of inherent characteristics with a set of requirements.”
  • People accomplishing ambitious things together
    “The Eiffel Tower was built in 2 years and 2 months; that is, in 793 days. When completed in 1889, it became the tallest building in the world, a record it held for more than 40 years. It cost about $40 million in 2019 dollars.”
  • Charge your worth
    “I never assumed a client wouldn’t value my work if they couldn’t afford my rates. I knew they were not a good fit for me. As much as I would like to buy a Ferrari SF90 Spider, I wouldn’t value the vehicle’s quality less when I couldn’t afford something at the top of the market. I know it’s not the best decision for my finances, so I look for a cheaper alternative.”
