  • “A radiology practice’s success hinges on attracting the best staff and providers. Recruitment campaigns should create marketing materials that incorporate images and video to best convey the character and the mission of the organization. People want to be part of organizations that have an important mission.”


    The Power of Stories in Brands, Business, and Life.

  • “Similarly, residency and fellowship training programs can engage medical student applicants with online video clips designed to illustrate the resident culture. One of the most common metrics that students describe in their decision- making process is “whether I feel like it’s a good fit.” Web-based resources that tell the story of life within a department can be very effective in the competitive recruitment arena.”

  • “Although patient selection of a radiology department is often limited by their provider’s referral patterns and insurance requirements, departments can offer potential patients unique insight into the people that provide the imaging services through storytelling video clips. Radiology is often perceived as an impersonal specialty because we have not traditionally provided direct patient care. Practices that can demonstrate the character of their faculty and staff will provide potential and existing patients with the reassurance of a positive patient experience.”

    Ayn Rand
  • “Remember, science fiction's always been the kind of first level alert to think about things to come. It's easier for an audience to take warnings from sci-fi without feeling that we're preaching to them. Every science fiction movie I have ever seen, any one that's worth its weight in celluloid, warns us about things that ultimately come true.” 

    Steven Spielberg
  • “Technology can be our best friend, and technology can also be the biggest party pooper of our lives. It interrupts our own story, interrupts our ability to have a thought or a daydream, to imagine something wonderful, because we're too busy bridging the walk from the cafeteria back to the office on the cell phone.” 

    Steven Spielberg
  • “Social media has taken over in America to such an extreme that to get my own kids to look back a week in their history is a miracle, let alone 100 years.”

  • “Any darn fool can make something complex; it takes a genius to make something simple.”
    Albert Einstein
  • “We have already gone so far down the road of serving computers that we’ve come to accept our servitude as necessary. It isn’t. It is time for us to rise up with a profound demand: “Make our computers simpler to use!” Make them talk to us, do things for us, get the information we want, help us work with other people, and adapt to our individual needs. Only then will computers make us productive and truly serve us, instead of the other way around.”

    Michael L. Dertouzos, Director, MIT Laboratory for Computer Science, in his book The Unfinished Revolution
  • “Reports that say that something hasn’t happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns – the ones we don’t know we don’t know.”
    Donald Rumsfield, 13th and 21st Secretary of Defense
  • “There was the old idea that if you had 1,000 monkeys and 1,000 typewriters, then in 1,000 years they would eventually write the complete works of Shakespeare. The Web proves that this is not true.”
    Kurt Vonnegut, in an interview on National Public Radio
  • “There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in his home.”

    Ken Olson, President, Digital Equipment Corp. (1977)
  • “To design something really well you have to get it. You have to really grok what it’s all about. It takes a passionate commitment to thoroughly understand something — chew it up, not just quickly swallow it. Most people don’t take the time to do that. Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask a creative person how they did something, they may feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after awhile. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they’ve had more experiences or have thought more about their experiences than other people have. Unfortunately, that’s too rare a commodity. A lot of people in our industry haven’t had very diverse experiences. They don’t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions, without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better designs we will have.”
    Steve Jobs, Wired (March, 1996)
  • It is far better to adapt the technology to the user than to force the user to adapt to the technology.
    Larry Marine

  • We do not see things as they are; we see things as we are.
    The Talmud
  • Your customers are not you. They don’t look like you, they don’t think like you, they don’t do the things that you do, they don’t have your expectations or assumptions. If they did, they wouldn’t be your customers; they’d be your competitors.
– Mike Kuniavsky, user experience guru
    Computers make it easier to do a lot of things, but most of the things they make it easier to do don’t need to be done.

    Andy Rooney, actor
  • "My job is to not be easy on people. My job is to make them better. My job is to pull things together from different parts of the company and clear the ways and get the resources for the key projects. And to take these great people we have and to push them and make them even better, coming up with more aggressive visions of how it could be.”

    Steve Jobs
  • "Recruiting is hard. It's just finding the needles in the haystack. We do it ourselves and we spend a lot of time at it. I've participated in the hiring of maybe 5,000-plus people in my life. So I take it very seriously. You can't know enough in a one-hour interview. So, in the end, it's ultimately based on your gut. How do I feel about this person? What are they like when they're challenged? Why are they here? I ask everybody that: 'Why are you here?' The answers themselves are not what you're looking for. It's the meta-data.”
    Steve Jobs
  • "At Pixar when we were making Toy Story, there came a time when we were forced to admit that the story wasn't great. It just wasn't great. We stopped production for five months.... We paid them all to twiddle their thumbs while the team perfected the story into what became Toy Story. And if they hadn't had the courage to stop, there would have never been a Toy Story the way it is, and there probably would have never been a Pixar.”

    Steve Jobs
  • "Our goal is to try to bring a calm and simplicity to what are incredibly complex problems so that you're not aware really of the solution."

    Jony Ive
  • “It’s very easy to be different, but very difficult to be better."
    Jony Ive
  • “Simplicity is not the absence of clutter; that's a consequence of simplicity. Simplicity is somehow essentially describing the purpose and place of an object and product. The absence of clutter is just a clutter-free product. That's not simple." 

    Jony Ive
  • “Good is the enemy of great."
    Jony Ive
  • “We have always thought about design as being so much more than just the way something looks. It's the whole thing: the way something works on so many different levels. Ultimately, of course, design defines so much of our experience."
    Jony Ive
  • "You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
    Steve Jobs
  • “I'm convinced that about half of what separates successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.”

    Steve Jobs

    Bob Dylan, singer and songwriter
  • “Not everything that can be counted, counts. And not everything that counts can be counted.”
    Albert Einstein, physicist

  • Older people sit down and ask, 'What is it?' but the boy asks, 'What can I do with it?'. 
    Steve Jobs
  • “Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”
