design thinking and love

At first, I was intrigued by the idea of relating design thinking to being in love. For example, you lose track of time when you’re with someone you love - similar to a state of flow that occurs during design thinking. You also can’t be complacent in a relationship, conditions are constanlty changing and there is no real “end goal.” Similarly, designers often strive for states that do not yet exist and work within dynamic environments.
