Learn, design, iterate your life
Stop taking inspiration and start creating your own designs.
Be shameless in sharing your WIP design in public and getting feedback. It helps.
Your design doesn’t need to be excellent; it needs to be original.
90% of the time you will be thinking and researching how to solve the problem. 10% of the time you will be designing in the tool.
Travel places and take photographs; it will give you a new perspective on design.
In-person networking is more important than having internet buddies.
Be open-minded and listen to different perspectives.
Note: Everyone has different principles and perspectives
