The design sprint we finished today reminded me why I love this process so much - teamwork and collaboration truly make the magic happen.

When I start my day with purpose, I set the stage for a productive day. I no longer waste time reacting to whatever happens, I shape my day and keep control over my time and energy. Family life is tough, and some days I lose track, but try to pick it up as soon as possible.

One of the best decisions early in my design career was embracing a generalist approach. By exploring various disciplines, I gained valuable insights into my passions. This allowed me to tackle diverse tasks, keeping work interesting and avoiding monotony.

Don’t wait for your designs to be perfect before sharing them. Remember, a design is never truly finished, and feedback can only help refine and improve your work.
