Good design feels timeless, like it could be from any period. Bad design relies too heavily on passing fashions.
Good designs tend to last longer when they get straight to the point, and definitely don’t have all the right pieces in the wrong places.
Long lasting design can become iconic and even be a point of pride. It is not frustrating to interact with.
Same goes with your life. You want to create a system that will help show you the way and not rely on antiquated designs.
And that’s the seventh principle!
In future videos we’ll go into greater detail into how to make choices with the long term in mind.
As always, I’d love to hear from you. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please comment on the video or send me an email at hello at a life well designed.com
Thanks for watching!
