John Siracusa (Hypercritical Episode 100, 66th minute)

Listening to Hypercritical was my favourite weekend past-time for the past couple of years. I’m a bit sad to see it end because i”ll miss those epic Siracusa rants. The show single handedly changed the way i look at products/services. 

I’ve really enjoyed every minute of those 100 episodes + their corresponding After Dark shows. It has been a great ride.

It’s about aiming for what’s better. But the minute that you think perfection is attainable you’ve begun closing your eyes to what can actually be improved.

Constraints often breed creativity because they force you to improvise — to think differently. But self-restraint is just as important. And harnessed correctly, it can yield far greater results.

If you can talk brilliantly about a problem, it can create the consoling illusion that it has been mastered.

Be fair to people, but always stand up for what you believe in. Don’t follow the crowd if they don’t truly represent your thoughts.
I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what’s next.
