Never let your ideas disappear — Riccardo Giorato
R: Can you introduce shortly yourself?
Myself: I’m Riccardo the founder of this publication here on Medium( side note: I started it as a personal category in my old wordpress blog ).
I’m currently studying computer science while trying to embrace design on my own.
R: Do you do some ritual every day outside of work/study?
Myself: I have weekly routines with specific day for certain activities but most of my days I try to get up early, get ready and go working or studying as soon as possible then before dinner have a simple workout at home.
R: How do you manage to do creative work every day?
Myself: After dinner I open up Figma ( like Sketch on steroids ) and start working on a design as fast as possible following the daily ui challenge.
R: What thought or tip would you give to yourself in the past?
Myself: Just start doing something and never let your ideas disappear, at least start working on one of them, then the next one and so on.
R: Any study tip for a high school, university student?
Myself: Start using google calendar and Evernote to manage all your future events and note plus never be shy always act and don’t be afraid of everything.
R: Can you tell us a small story from an error that you made you understood something really important for your life?
Myself: You should try to learn how to improve yourself every day, during my high school years I haven’t been so focused on studying and I got really bad result at university during the first year so I decided to start working on my skills, abilities, discipline.
I didn’t stop this path, it will last forever because we transform our-self every day and you should start thinking more about yourself every day, less about other more about your own personality.
R: What is going to look like future? What would you like to create or to see developed? VR stuff?
Myself: Digital nomads plus Virtual and Augmented reality are going to disrupt every part of our life. I’d love to see developed a VR/AR school for kids plus being able to enhance teachers work by having thousands of bot and machine learning tools to help every kid in every place, outside and inside classroom.
R: What is going to look like your daily routine when you’ll retire from work?
Myself: I’m still in university but I think I won’t retire 100% I’d love to mentor or teach to kids, helping them achieve greater things or working for environmental groups as local volunteer.
