Michael Gaigg: Über UI/UX Design


New Year’s Resolution: Gift Books (don’t lend them)

I used to have a rule (you know, a rule helps you solving a problem in your life that you then never have to worry about anymore) that said: never lend a book, always gift it!

I don’t know why or when I stopped applying this rule but my thinking behind it is:

  • You value the book but somebody else values it more at this time
  • Lending it will consume your energy remembering who you lent it to end when
  • The other person constantly feels bad for not returning the book to you up to a point when it becomes real guilt and shame
  • The other person cannot really enjoy the book in fear of marking a page or paragraph or leaving coffee stains

So the solution is: Gift the book! In that way both parties feel good.
