End of Average

Recommended by

This book provided great insights about how there is no average person (physically, intellectually, etc) so the idea of working to be "above average" is an unfair and unrealistic expectation we put on ourselves and others. Most importantly, because schools, companies and others use these averages to measure people, it forces us to work at becoming the average instead of embracing our individuality. As a mother, manager, and person passionate about inclusive design this motivates me to encourage myself and others to set goals based on real individuals and ourselves -- not an idealized standard that describes no one. ‍
