When good design feels simple and barely designed, it’s most probably been refined over the course of many years.

How do we work with someone who doesn’t seem to care?

I have a hard time believing that people can’t care. I think that they often don’t see. They don’t see what we see, or interpret it differently. Or if they see, they see something you don’t see. But if they saw what you saw, and it was related to how they saw themselves, they’d act differently.

The gap is usually in the difficulty of getting the non-owner to see a path to happiness that comes as a result of acting like an owner. Most people are taught to avoid that feeling. Because it always comes with another feeling–the dread of responsibility.

Empathy is quite difficult

The fact that we think the way we speak is normal is the first clue that empathy is quite difficult.

You might also notice how easy it is to notice people who are much worse at driving than you are–but that you almost never recognize someone who’s driving better than you are.
