I just wanted to take a moment to share from my heart a few quick thoughts about design and what it means to me. Hope you enjoy them!
Let's start with what design is not. Design is not something you do, it's not a job description, it's not a title. Design is a way of life!
I believe that anyone can live a well-designed life! For instance, as a designer, I have to pay attention to every detail to make sure a project goes according to plan. Yet it’s not about control, but about choices. The daily choices to live the best life possible.
The choice of being fit
The choice of dressing well
The choice to have an organized home
The choice of eating right
The choice of being well spoken
The choice of living below our means
The choice to expect excellence in everything we do
The choice to succeed!
These are a few of the hundreds of choices we need to make in order to live the life we are meant to live. That’s what design means to me, striving to be the best version of myself. To be better than I was before. Not being better than anyone, but better than my past self. It is a struggle like anything worthwhile.
I hope you get to take this journey with me and let me help you design your life!
