Creating websites is often the last thing I think about before I go to sleep, and the first thing I think about when I wake up. Yes, it may be a bit odd, but you can put that oddity to work for you.
I’ve worked as a graphic designer and web developer since 1999 (full-time since 2000) and owned my own full-time business since 2006.
I’m a graduate of the prestigious (and grueling) graphic design program at Portfolio Center in Atlanta and hold a BA in Art History from Davidson College (NC).
The physical benefits of exercise. Knowing when to push and when to ease up. Staying calm and persevering when things get tough. Starting, stopping, and re-starting over and over. (Including stopping exercising altogether for a while and then restarting it :-)
The ability to play well with others. Knowing my place in an ensemble. The spaces between the notes are just as important as the notes themselves. (Currently I’m enjoying the djembe and ukulele. I’m also teaching drumming to others.)
Consciously practicing dual-perspective and clear, consistent communication on a daily basis. Going with the flow. Not sweating the small stuff. (I have genetically identical twin toddlers.)
Reducing the unnecessary. Putting things in logical places. (I’m a bit obsessed with this.)
Work can and should be fun, at least most of the time. (Yes, I do this stuff in my spare time, too, just because I like it. My personal research and play make my professional projects stronger. My wife sees me on the computer after-hours and asks “are you working?” and my best answer is “um... no... well, kind of... but not really...”)
