'Zen'se

All happiness begins with knowing what you want.

All unhappiness begins with not knowing what you want.

All chaos begins with trusting other people to know what you want.

All chaos persists with other people giving you what you don’t know you want.

All frustration stems from getting what you may not want.

All homicidal instincts arise from having to pay for what you definitely don’t want.





Giving you what you want is a promise.

Giving you what you may or may not want is a compounded promise.

A compounded promise is a ‘com’-promise.

You don’t want a compromise.

Nobody does.

It makes one unhappy.

It does not make one happy.

All happiness begins with knowing what you want……


Someday, this will be my response to a client’s feedback: ‘So…this is it? I’m not sure…not what I had in mind.’

And when he says, ‘Huh?’, I shall pull out his design document, flutter it in the air, and say, ‘Exactly.’

Guess your happiness has begun. I mean 'you know what you want' to do with your client.

I'd probably tap the client on the head with his own design doc :P
