Lessons Learned.

Some the easy way, some the hard way:

  • Do not overlook project limitations. Design to them. Push when appropriate.
  • Hobbies are free. Work is paid. Find a way to make overlap happen.
  • Self-promotion should surface through artistic expression, not overexposure.
  • When communicating, say only what is necessary.
  • Be nimble. Be loyal. Be confident. Be visually literate.
  • I can drive a bulldozer. (metaphorically...)
  • Help yourself! Work smart, avoid self-sabotage and learn to put the pencil down.
  • The ability to self-critique is different than being critical of yourself.
  • Give back. It pays the soul.
  • Chewing gum does not belong in meetings or introductions.
