At Peel, we create products that are unobtrusive and minimal. Here’s why:
As humans, we take on too much.
It could be stuff, social obligations, work, clutter, etc. Ultimately there’s a cost to taking on too much – it takes away from our time, resources, and attention towards what truly matters to us. What’s important to you will differ from the next person. That’s what makes us all unique.
We believe that whatever you’re pursuing, be intentional about it.
What does that mean?
Being intentional is about
- Being clear on what is important to you
- Cutting out what isn’t important to you (the difficult part)
- Going after what you value with great vigilance
It’s so easy to get wrapped up in trying to do everything and please everyone. It seems to make sense — say yes to as much as possible! This is a trap and a path to mediocrity. Instead, be thoughtful about what’s truly important to you (the less the better) and then focus on those with everything you have. Cut out everything else.
We've found that subtracting from your life is often the best way to accomplish more of what you want, and less of what you don’t.
Less = more.
Doing less of what we don't enjoy, saying no more often, and limiting what we spend money on leaves us with more for the few things that really matter.
This is the foundation of how we think about our products, design and processes.
