FIND YOUR BIG WHY

Dis­cover your pur­pose by ask­ing your­self what drives you cre­atively, what is it that makes you want to cre­ate? Now ask your­self, or oth­ers, what’s the sin­gle big­gest bar­rier in achiev­ing this? Put aside at least an hour a day to close the gap be­tween what you want and what you can do.

TAKE A CHANCE

If you want some­thing you’ve never had, you’ve got to be will­ing to do some­thing you’ve never done. Sorry to go all self-help on you, but big re­wards rarely come with­out the risk of fail­ure. Take one per­sonal project you’ve been mean­ing to start, make a Tum­blr for it (or a no­tice­board, or a hash­tag, what­ever you like), and get go­ing. The faster you share your ideas, the faster they be­come real.

LEARN FROM THE GREATS

We’re lucky that as de­sign­ers there’s a ton of ad­vice and wis­dom to be found in books. Who do you ad­mire that you could ask for ad­vice? Ask this per­son what they would do if they were you. Do it. Then get back to your ad­vi­sor, let­ting them know that you did what they sug­gested and thank­ing them. Do this once a week and you’ll quickly build up a valu­able net­work of con­tacts.
