Respect don’t revere.
Putting anyone on a pedestal is dangerous. It implies they’re better than everyone else; but they’re not.

Don’t confuse innovation with novelty.
You may have successfully designed the latest shiny object for people to get excited about…at least until a new shiny object came out.
And that’s the reason product features are more a novelty than an innovation. They are added in an attempt to differentiate, but not reinvent.
It’s not a bad thing, but it can’t be counted on to add any long-term value.
Novelty can drive sales, but the impact does not last.
Laughter itself is a very useful behavioral reference point.
Most people can distinguish genuine laughter from artificially forced good humor if they put their mind to it.
