Something I've been mulling over recently, would love to discuss. Design is slowly learning lessons that engineering teams have already solved. Why don't we embrace them more? Versioning✅, components✅, documentation🤷‍♂️, ticketing🚫, agile planning🚫, architecture reviews🚫etc

Because we are wild creative creatures that need complete freedom to wait until inspiration comes 🙄

Even designing in chunks (components) instead of the whole screen is avoided. 🤦🏻‍♂️

So now nature is the only inspiration source. Like “I don’t know how to do this, I need to stare at some trees to get the answer” (https://ramiroruiz.com/notes/2019/11/05/17-48-00)

I do like to go for walks to clear my mind but let’s not abuse and give the idea that nothing else influence our work. Let’s give credit to those who deserve it.

I've reached the point in this last year of working on my personal site in fits and spurts, where I think I've over-designed and over-engineered it into an overly robust system versus making the content that should live on it. What started out as very simple became complex.

Never ending story for me. It took me forever to publish personal stuff, till recently, I just started to ship bit by bit and accepted that my site will always be a WIP.
