Discover Creativity & Perfectionism

I joined an online creativity workshop on Udemy by Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat Pray Love. Elizabeth says, being creative doesn’t mean that you have to be an artist; but if you want to stay creative, you need to find a way to make it a routine and form a mindset. Mostly importantly, you need to stay curious. Also, keep in mind that perfectionism is the enemy of creativity — don’t wait till you have everything to start executing.

Nir Eyal: Behavior Design

Nir talks about behavior design in this excellent video. He gives a nice intro to this concept and several great examples about how companies (e.g. Facebook, Pinterest, Zynga) change user habits, and what every designer should know about creating products that users love. I strongly recommend this video if you are a product owner, product manager, UI designer or UX designer like me.
