What Are Our Priorities?

October 16, 2011

It is easy to tell just by looking around a bit and applying the principle that we tend to meet our priorities.  Therefore the most ubiquitous experiences are highly prioritized.  A few I’ve noticed:

  • The retail shopping experience: you go into a store with lots of stuff so you can find anything you need, any time.  If you can’t find what you need, or it’s not in stock, you are disappointed, so keeping the stores stocked with stuff is a priority.
  • The freeway driving experience: you get in a car and you can drive anywhere there are roads.  But if there are too many other people driving there, you are frustrated, so making sure there are plenty of roads to drive on is a priority.
  • The job experience: you get a job following instructions so that you can get paid.  But if people don’t have paying jobs they don’t have the right to buy things, so making sure there are plenty of jobs is a priority.

Here are a couple of alternate suggestions:

What if we made it a priority to design systems that automatically meet human needs (the accessibility priority)?

What if we made it a priority to embrace community (the cooperation priority)?

What if we made it a priority to create a facilitative, nurturing environment (the growth priority)?
