Tom Peters nailed it: PASSION FOR PERFECTION! If for some reason you have never heard of TOM PETERS then Google him! Then read EVERY book he has authored!
Today you do NOT see PASSION FOR PERFECTION! My Mom was a true blue PERFECTIONIST and now her son has that same trait in him! Yes it can DEFINITELY be a HUGE pain in the a–!
This is especially with the high level of INDIFFERENCE and STUPIDITY we see today!
I agree with what my mentor King Solomon said about STUPID people: they should NOT be tolerated in a society!
I especially see this with DESIGNERS of products. Today I was trying to open a can of tuna with one of those pull top lids. Well this one must have been designed for Hercules or Zena to open! I’m pretty strong and I could not get the lid to budge. Finally I slipped a knife edge under the area where it normally pops open. I then was able to get it open!
Now the company that makes this can brags about how the size is just perfect for us “young seniors” to use without having to have leftover tuna. That’s true but most seniors don’t possess the strength of Hercules or Zena! They need to make sure the damn can will open easily for us!
So if you are a designer, would you at least run tests (lots of them!) with your target market BEFORE you hoist some so-called nifty designed item on us! Also will you test it over and over to make sure it does what you claim!
If you don’t then a hex upon you and your product/service!
