We all set goals. Did you set the right ones?
Designing a lovely new interface: is the goal a lovely new interface – something never seen before so you can impress yourself – or is the goal to support those who will use it toward their goals?

Who controls your fulfillment?
First let’s ask, what fulfills you?
- “Making great designs” gives control to the design owner. “Growing in my craft” takes back control, because both design success or design failure leads to growth.
- “Leading a successful project” gives control to the client. “Nurturing those under my leadership” takes back control, because you can choose to nurture regardless of outcome.
- “Working on fun tasks” makes you unreliable, since no one knows if you’ll do your work. “Finding joy in my work” takes back control, because you control your mindset.
Don’t outsource your fulfillment. Where do you need to take back control of yours?
