all you need is love. get real!

Lennon said,

There is nothing you can do that can’t be done. All you need is love, love is all you need.

Is that true? ‘cos Lennon lived in the ’60s and ’70s.220px-JohnLennonpeaceAt that time there were all hippies and people busy striking to stop the war. All you care about is the world peace because your brothers and sisters got hurt and killed. But after the world passed the World War 2 (don’t think of the terrorist bombing and the never-ending-war in the Middle-East), now what? Is all you need still LOVE? Are you even need it right now? John Mayer is still alive and he said,

All you need is love is a lie, ‘cos we had love but we still say goodbye.

And I gotta say, I’m totally agree with him. I mean, not that I againts my old believe in Lennon’s songs but, the world has changed. Love is not enough now, it never is. People fall in love, people kiss, people get married. But then what? People get divorced, people hurt each other, people leave people for another people. That’s what people do after the war. No country to fight for, the new trend is fight for your own amusement. I’d say fuck it. I hate everything what people do now. But who am I to judge? The people are my bestfriends. The people are my parents. The people are my sisters.

I used to be the kind of girl who believes in what MJ said in “Heal The World”. I used to think that I will make a change later when I’m capable. But now I’m 20, and all I see how selfish people can get, how important material and status are, and how much someone can cause an unbelievable pain but then act like ABSO-FUCKING-LUTELY NOTHING HAPPENED!

Isn’t that psycho? Or am I just being too sensitive? Well in that case, as I grow older, I find myself not too fit on how the world works. Unfortunately I’m too chicken to check out from the planet, so I’m just gonna stick in for awhile, keep judging, and suck it up!

So I don’t know whether if all we need is love is true or false, but maybe we need the song to remind us when everytime life locked us out. At least I’m doing it, and it works, I do feel better, especially when the hotty Jim Sturgess images sing it, MUCH better!


the IDEO Way

IDEO as the world’s leading design consultant, IDEO has had many multinational company begging to be their customer. Not just to ask a design, but to figure out how the IDEO way of innovation. The IDEO way of seeing things has inspired many people & companies and also teached them in the most unique way, yet simple.

Walk into any bookstore, and you’ll find countless numbers of books on innovation. In many of them you’ll find chapters detailing a man named David Kelley, and his company, IDEO Product Development.

One of my favorite is what they told us on how to write a book like the IDEO way, instead of telling us to study, practice, or even put more effort, IDEO told us to grab a “3×5” cards like storyteller1, and capture every of your best story as you think of it. As we write down the story each one of the story on a seperate card, or clipping quotes or put drawings, the chapter outline will come later as in a pattern-recognition process which involves spreading the story cards on the floor. For a person like me, who never started my own writing because of thousands excuses of mine, it was a mind-blowing solution. It didn’t take time, no financial expense, and no need to focus. It gives a sight to my busy routine and a hope to make my own book to happen. The IDEO Way truly a winner, it already gave an impact to my life just by reading one of their articles! I can’t imagine how innovative my life would be if I read the whole book. Hahaha..Anyway, here is the book cover if you’re interested after reading my post about it:








From what I read, David Kelley clearly sees creativity as a discipline that can be learned and improved. He said,

It is a radical notion, in its way: the idea that creativity can be summoned at will, with a process not unlike the scientific method. That contradicts what most people — including the 50 students sitting mesmerized before him — have always thought. “That to be creative, an angel of the Lord appears and tells you what to do

Here are some pictures of my favorite IDEO products:





IDEO redifined good design by creating experiences, not just products. Now it’s changing the way companies innovate.
