Genuine Generosity

Have you ever done something good for people and hoping the other person will appreciate it? Have you ever go all out and help someone but later regret (maybe, a bit) because the inconveniences it bring to you and the continuous expectations of the person to get your help?

In my opinion, there are not a lot of genuine generosities you can find from people. Almost all people who are generous to you actually expect something in returns (okay, maybe except Mother Theresa and a bunch of Saints). The returns can be something as small as the phrase “Thank you” and showing of appreciations. Anyhow, returns are expected. This is actually human nature, something unconscious that make us hope for something in returns even though every self-development book will ask us to always give and not hoping for any returns.

Ask yourself this:
Do you ever give someone a small favour and when the person do not thank you or act in a way that does not show his appreciation, you told yourself, you would not give…

More Features in the Product does not necessarily mean a good thing

I always thought a good product need to have all sorts of features that your competitors had, but it turns out not necessary true. Instead of adding new features, a company can concentrate making the service or product much easier to use.

Pay Attention to Details

What I learnt about wanting a kick-butt design in products..............Quoted from Steve Jobs:
The iMac is not just the color or translucence or the shape of the shell. The essence of the iMac is to be the finest possible consumer computer in which each element plays together.
On our latest iMac, I was adamant that we get rid of the fan, because it is much more pleasant to work on a computer that doesn't drone all the time. That was not just "Steve's decision" to pull out the fan; it required an enormous engineering effort to figure out how to manage power better and do a better job of thermal conduction through the machine. That is the furthest thing from veneer. It was at the core of the product the day we started.
This is what customers pay us for--to sweat all these details so it's easy and pleasant for them to use our computers. (emphasis mine)
