People adopt and endorse something which they feel they want at a primal level, with the design appeal of the product/service coming in play.

Design creates Desirability

The No. 1 reason startups fail is that they try to build something that nobody wants.

People adopt and endorse something which they feel they want at a primal level, with the design appeal of the product/service coming in play.

The Three Forces

Creating something that people would desire requires examining the three main forces involved.

  • The Person: The kind of person the product or service is targeted towards, his likes and dislikes, age, and preferences.
  • The Situation: The current situation, climate, mindset or even the state of the world is a big factor. People require different things in different situations.
  • The Problem: The problem part is the force which makes the person take action. It is the trigger for the person to find a solution.

The solution to the problem may not become your product or service automatically, but it can be a process to move towards the best kind of solution.

There is no "best diet"

The “best” diet is a theme: an emphasis on vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, lentils, nuts, seeds, and plain water for thirst. 

That can be with or without seafood; with or without dairy; with or without eggs; with or without some meat; high or low in total fat.

The "Age" of vegetables
The best vegetables are likely to be fresh and locally sourced, but flash frozen is nearly as good (as freezing delays aging). Those “fresh” vegetables that spend a long time in storage or transit are probably the least nutritious.

Owning a suburban home

The idea of owning a suburban home was fed to Americans by people in power: Suburbia has always been suitable for industry.

Big houses = big appliances. This fed the coal, steel, and automaking industries. With it came cars and oil that made the postwar American suburb possible. It is all as much a creature of government as of the market.

Reconsidering the suburban house 

The climate crisis and carbon dependency make potential homeowners reconsider the effects of suburban sprawl.

The September 11, 2001, terrorist attack and the market crash of 2008 sowed a sense of instability and propagated fears.
