Principles

Creating multiple prototypes will enable the ability of choosing the best and the most perfect product.

If you are not able to state the usefulness and the uniqueness of the product, no one would think that the product is good and not buy it. If no one buys the product, the product would be useless.

3 Top Principles

1. Do what you love - If you don't do what you love, you won't be able to truly have your heart and soul into doing what you do.

2. Kickstart your brain - Be creative! Look at things from multiple points of views. For example: look at a bottle and think of a hundred different ways the bottle could have been designed.

3. Put a dent in the universe - Make sure your product is unique and that it's the one and only one there is. This way consumers will remember your products and come back to get more or even buy more than one at once!

- stay focused on the task at hand, don't stray away from the main purpose of the product

- extracting inspiration from other products, but not making it too similar

- compare and contrast your different product designs to pick out the best one

- be committed, don't give up if you fail once or twice or even more times, creating a bad product is inevitable, you just have to keep trying

- prepare yourself, do the necessary research before designing your product

Principles (I&E)

1. Do What You Love

Doing what you love inspires you to do your best and to me, it is the most important as it means chasing your passion no matter what obstacles come in your way. People who are passionate about what they do will strive for the best and never give up. 

2. Sell Dreams, Not Products

When you come with a creative and innovative idea, you will have a goal in mind. By selling your dreams, not your products, you will put in a lot of hard work in that idea and you will perfect it in every way. 

3. Say 'No' to a Thousand Things

Every time you say 'No' to someone, you already have a better and more creative idea in mind. By saying 'No', you are going to work hard to achieve that goal no matter how hard it gets. It also proves how strong, focused, determined and confident you will be when pursuing that idea.

  Principles That You Need to Succeed

- Organise Yourself
- Try, Try and Try Again
- Don't Be Afraid of Failure
- Have Pride in Your Work
- Be Patient and Never Lose Hope
- Have Faith in Yourself
- Enjoy the Process

Doing what you love will motivate you to work hard in order to achieve a certain goal. We should not just settle on a job that you dislike just because it give you high pay.
