We can make our choices by design or by default.
To eat by design is to be mindful of what goes into the mouth. To eat by default is to eat what everybody else is eating.
To live by design is to have hobbies. To live by default is to seek entertainment.
Designers create new patterns and look at the world in new ways. Defaulters simply ease into existing patterns.
To design is to choose the inconvenient but meaningful. To default is to do the convenient without paying heed to meaning.
To design is to choose your life. To default is to let somebody else choose for you.
So what is it going to be?
