7 habits of highly effective...

(I’m sure this has been asked countless times before but I can’t help myself.)
I’m looking for the habits of effective designers.   Not necessarily hard or soft skills.
Collaboration, communication, documentation, and investigation techniques all play a part but I'm looking for other, more specialized (or peculiar) routines and habits common to effective designers.The more specialized and peculiar the better!

Wholesale banking experience research

So, the questions are:

>> 1. if you are a rich man, looking for a financial institution to
manage &

Wholesale banking is a relationship driven business, there is very little
to no self-service in the sales process. There are two types of people
involved one is the decision maker who buys the product/service and the
other person is someone who does the actual day to day transactions. The
decision maker is a senior executive like the CEO, CFO, or Treasurer.

shopping.rediff.com - too much simplicity?

Rediff, one of the leading portals in India recently underwent an entire
redesign focusing on simplicity. But I guess it did the worse thing to their
online shopping site.

Can anyone locate "Womens ear rings" in their categories page?

The old site was way better compared to the new site. The old site had the
traditional approach and it was reasonably easy to navigate and shop around.

Re: Menu caption design (Sandeep Jain)

Another option is to have a history window similar to
Photoshop's. Keep the menu name short (Either "Undo"
or "Undo Move"), but in the history window have a
longer description "Undo Move Zone A", using the
guidelines Jim outline below for the best terminology.

To "argue this with your engineering manager", you
might try to pointing to existing applications. Remind
them of how they don't like to see non-standard menu
names, or how unwieldy (or helpful!) a particular name
might be. Try to point to specific resources that back
you up.

up/down; forward/back; right/left

Hi gang,

I'm working on a project where we are trying to figure out in a horizontal
layout for physical buttons that are used for navigating a list of options
(primarily) that are layed out vertically how would you layout these

So you have a button on the left and another one on the right.
while button goes up the list and which button goes down?

Here are some cursory thoughts.
#1 Forward = add = up
Based on that a "volume control" seems to be the most used example and
adding volume (going up) is always on the right.

#2 If we look though at the same metaphor which is a k
