The question that they were asking me was why, I had no ...

10 Design Ideas to Steal from an Über Creative Remodel by Studio Oink

When our photographer friend Matthew Williams and I traveled to Washington, DC, to photograph a new project by German design firm Studio Oink, I was glad I had just cleared up memory on my iPhone. I took a lot of snapshots. The switch plates, powder-coated hardware, iridescent curtains, paint colors, flush electrical outlets—I was in design-detail heaven. A lot of it went on my mental pinboard I call “future remodel.” Here’s a look at the genius design ideas brought to life by Studio Oink’s Lea ...

Being in the Zone

--> Nothing is more important to success in your career and life than being in the zone. The problem with most people, however, is that they are not in the zone; instead, they are merely doing what they and others think they should be doing. Most people are following a path that they believe will lead to happiness, wealth, and achievement, rather than doing what comes naturally to them, what they are good at, and the sort of work that makes them happy. You should not be doing anything as a caree...
