Design thinking is about helping people and organizations to solve their problems for long-term satisfaction, not achieving efficiency for short-run gains.

“Sit at the table.” If you don’t know the standard, how will you know to go above and beyond; if you don’t know what’s being said at the table, how will you prepare for an opportunity that could change your life? Always keep your hand up. Always have questions. Always show up. ~Sheryl Sanberg, Chief Operating Officer of Facebook

What if the process of education were as intentionally crafted as the products of education (i.e., we always think about the book report or the final project, but not the path to get there). What if teachers were treated as designers?

The label, 'designer,' simply articulates the founder's intention to create systems and experiences that persuade people to do something. That will be the best indicator of who they are, not their titles or methods or definitions.

“I think what I’ve always been after is the pursuit of working on a problem or an idea that really resonates with me – when it doesn’t feel like work, I know I have it” ~ Ilya Grigorik

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

- Steve Jobs
