As a UX professional I take inspiration from a great many things. Since I’m also a big pop culture geek, that’s the biggest well I draw from. I’ve read a lot of entertainment biographies lately, and the latest was about famed martial artist and actor Bruce Lee. As I was reading The Bruce Lee Story (written by his wife) I was pleased to note that he, too, believed in borrowing ideas and techniques from other fields.
Thanks to Rick Sapir for posting this on Google+. As a big Bruce Lee fan and as a "retired" martial artist myself (black belt in taekwondo), I was interested to see how the author of this article would tie together UX strategy and Bruce Lee philosophies in his analogy, and he did an incredibly excellent job of it. Definitely read this. It’s easy reading, but it’s intuitive reading, too.
