    I think it's blue-ribbon kids who've never had a tough time. By tough time I do not mean a single parent raising 123 kids, but just generally facing adversity. Whether in work or in life or in sports. The premise that you are not the whole person on the team, or the cog in the machine or whatever. The general premise that one person contributes to a larger piece and things are often a cumulative effort derived of a bunch of individual efforts.

    I think folks who do not understand that are jaded. And in this case, jaded designers.
