Tastes Change


Anyone remember automobile designs in the nineties? I think we can all agree on this matter -- awful. Go ahead and look up some images of a 1996 Ford Taurus if you’re unsure what I’m talking about. The fact is, consumers and automakers at that time had (what we now recognize as) poor tastes.

But the Ford Taurus was a surprisingly well-built, reliable car. Take a trip to the midwest and you’ll find some of these 20+ year old beasts still chugging along. Ugly as sin, but a functional workhorse.

Tastes change, but principles do not. Today we can look at the ‘96 Taurus and chuckle in “what were we thinking?” disbelief. But the principles of what makes a car a good car (in the functional sense) have not changed a bit.

Tastes seem to be the guiding force in today’s health and fitness market, and the average person’s results are paying dearly for it. Just as with cars, tastes will change, but principles will not.

What do you follow — today’s tastes, or timeless principles?
