Make Products That Are Loved

13th May, 2012

Don’t just stare at the wall, blanked of any possibilities.

Struggling with life, busying with necessities.

 

Forget the stupid chase, “for fortunes” they say.

Work yourself up, there’s so much to lay.

 

Make things, and make them well.

Don’t worry about being big, about the sell.

 

Worry about the problem, worry about the solution.

Break the mould, break the convolution.

 

Brings in the smarts, bring in the love.

Who needs those bullet points when you got all the above?

 

Make that product for people to pour in emotion.

And you’ve got yourself a winner, with all the commotion.

 


P.S.: Our standards have jumped. We want beautiful products, not just functional products. We want high-end design. We want to fall in love with things we use everyday: toasters, websites, toothbrushes, cars, mobiles and even books.

You, the inventor, have to make them extra special.

P.P.S: This is the first installment of the PeoMBA series! You know, MBA-speak but in a poem!
(And don’t worry, it doesn’t get verse that this!)

    Interesting series, K. I look forward to more on this theme. It reads far better than those highbrow books can ever do! 😛
