I am really inspired by the phrase: Don’t make something unless it is both necessary and useful; but if it is both necessary and useful, don’t hesitate to make it beautiful. – Shaker Philosophy
While this doesn’t apply to my work 100% as not everything is necessary, it is something that I keep in the back of my mind. The part about “don’t hesitate to make it beautiful” is what stands out the most. If you are going to have things (and who doesn’t) they should be items that you appreciate, use and enjoy.
