I know, the number of lines-of-code (LOC) is not the most important performance indicator. It might be even one of the least important indicators.¶There are a couple of reasons for this. First, 10 good lines are by far preferred over 1000 lousy and poorly written lines.
One of the first things a burgeoning designer might learn is the concept of white, or negative, space. It's the idea that the empty space around your design elements is important and that through careful spacing, one can improve readability and enhance the clarity of a design.

Dear Kevin,¶Bad news: you have a fucking rat brain. As much as you wanna believe you have some beautiful, complex organ in your head, steered by an emergent cosmos or divine muse or the comforting cold of logic and algorithm, all that shit is a lie.

Like many of the previous contributors before me, I feel pretty unqualified to write a post about productivity. The thing is, I want to be a lazy person. I like to sleep in; I like to sit on the couch and watch TV; I like to stare into space and daydream. A lot. Probably the same as you, I don’t get to do these things as often as I’d like.

I’ve been working on the web since about 1994, and writing and speaking about it since about 2010. I’ve managed to do that quite a bit, but like many others, still have that same reaction to a blank page. Stare. Blink. Go get more coffee. Check Twitter. Look. Still blank. Sigh.

“Remember, that time is money. He that can earn ten shillings a day by his labor, and goes abroad, or sits idle, one half of that day, though he spends but sixpence during his diversion or idleness, ought not to reckon that the only expense; he has really spent, or rather thrown away, five shillings besides.”— Benjamin Franklin
