6 Key ingredients to become a Timeless Designer

  1. Right WHY
    We all have a reason or a purpose for everything. Some want to make an impact, and some want just money. A right WHY helps you to be on the right path and reminds you of the reasons you started it in the first place.
  2. Passion
    They say — if you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life. Passion helps you to be in the game even when it’s going tough. It ensures 100% commitment and love in your craft.
  3. Resourcefulness
    I don’t have the right tool; I don’t have the right team; I don’t have the skillset; Remember, all these are just excuses. As Tony Robbins says — Resources are never the problem; it’s the lack of resourcefulness. Never settle for a mediocre solution just because you don’t have THE TOOL.
  4. Adaptability
    We are living in a world where change is the only constant.
    Design is changing so rapidly that there is just one way to catch-up, if not outpace it and, it is to adapt as fast as possible. Flexibility is the path to sustainability.
  5. People Person
    Those days were gone when you could work in isolation for years without talking to anyone. Things have changed since then. Now, it is impossible to decide anything by yourself. Communication is one of the most important assets that designers should perfect every day.
  6. Growth Mindset
    Today’s designers will be tomorrow’s leaders only with a beginner’s mindset. Don’t let your ego and pride take the driver’s seat.
    Learn, grow, and repeat — this is the only way forward.
