When people ask me why I decided to start my own studio my standard response is, “because I made a terrible employee”.
As designers we at times have trouble saying, “no”. Amazing projects seem to drop in our laps all the time, but should we always say, “yes”?
I’ve grown accustomed to trying to do everything myself. For years, I was a design army of one. I liked the level of control doing everything afforded me.
When I decided to take on this project and produce 100 days of writing I tried to be a realist.
I’ve been thinking on the subject of down time and the importance of resetting. This is most likely because I’m so completely horrible at striking that balance between work and real life.
