I'm a Christian, a designer, and a gadget fan who lives in Cheltenham, UK.

This is my blog, a creative outlet to mess around and play with as well as a place that logs my thoughts and inspirations.

Maturity And Relaxed Productivity by Randy Murray

When you hes­it­ate, feel pres­sure, that’s an indic­at­or that you don’t yet have the matur­ity that you need. After you fin­ish the task at hand, step back and see if you can learn more about your task or activ­ity. That’s the first sign of matur­ity. The next step towards matur­ity and mas­tery is the dawn­ing recog­ni­tion that you don’t really know what you’re doing, you don’t under­stand the fun­da­ment­al issues, and the recog­ni­tion that you can grow, learn, and change.

I love design and am thank­ful that my job is always push­ing me. The pres­sure that I do feel at work is on the bits that are out­side my com­fort zone, the bit’s per­haps I don’t like doing but have little choice but to do. This quote from Randy just hit home, when you do some­thing most days but still feel like you’re bat­tling with it, take a step back and try to under­stand why, then prob­lem solve.
