    A process, not an event: achieving total commitment to building a design-driven company, from top to bottom. Even companies that get on the path of being design driven may have rogue cells in their DNA that can multiply to become a potentially fatal flaw. The risk is almost always around losing the magic that got them where they were, backing away from a living approach that ensured freshness and ongoing vision.

The focus is on issues, not people.

    Embrace your flaws and weaknesses-and transform them into the building blocks of greatness! We expect our heroes to be perfect, despite overwhelming evidence they never are. The ancient Greeks had no such expectations. It wouldn't be Greek mythology if the heroes weren't deeply flawed. And get this-there was no cure! Only if the hero recognized his weakness would the story end well.

    Try, fail, try again, win small, win a bit bigger, dig deeper inside...and do more than you ever imagined you could!

Marva Collins doesn't advise parents, kids, and teachers to wait for self-confidence, or to believe success is an entitlement. Self-esteem is overrated: it's about effort.

Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mother Teresa didn't. Enduringly successful people, many living lives that are gifts to the world, don't raise balance as a major issue. Not because they've handled it masterfully - but ecause they're busy doing what matters to them.

They hug, joke, compare bikes.

    Take a broader view of great product design-and promote culture and processes that help you create winning designs over and over again! The process that delivers a good design - the physical embodiment of the product and the way the thing looks and feels to a customer that is so important for success - is often driven more by serendipity than an integrated understanding of design's impact. Serendipity is a good thing - counting on it isn't.
