Consistency is a false god

Just wanted to post this as one of Hardie’s product design rules. Context is everything. If it makes sense in context, it’s right. Whether it is “consistent” with some other button or page or function or thing some other place in the product or in the world is less important. I’m not saying make things different for their own sake. I’m just saying design it for context. And if people can figure it out, done.
