divine presence and experience

leave a comment »

There’s a quote I like from the movie Cowboys & Aliens. It’s about divine presence and intervention:

Well, surely you don’t expect the lord to do everything for you. … You gotta earn his presence. And then you gotta recognize it. And then you have to act on it.

It’s the same with experience, First you have to earn it, then you have to recognize it and then you have to act on it.

If people tell you that it’s important, it’s critical, it can’t wait, it’s high priority, take it with a grain of salt.
Few things in life are important or critical, people make them appear that way.

beautiful and friendly forms based on Bootstrap and popovers

leave a comment »

If you’ve seen anything built with Bootstrap you’ll know that the overall  design is just beautiful.

Now, mix in that design mojo with the Popover functionality and you’ll get stunning and user-friendly forms like you’ve never had before. It’s so simple to implement and has such a great impact that I’m actually inclined to call this free end-user value. Read the rest of this entry »

experience is …

“Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes.”

- Oscar Wilde

“Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him.”

- Aldous Huxley

You gain experience through failure, strengthen it through practice.
