Designers are like everyone else, we have the same day-to-day struggles and worries as well as joys and life accomplishments that punctuate our lives. When assessing our needs and dreams, we are often tasked with taking inventory of what we’ve done and what we’d like for our future. We conclude with a list of the most important things we’d like to accomplish. This list often consists of maybe fifty or more items.
This list of 50 items can be further refined down to 5 with 1 being the top of the list. This is where the magic of human accomplishments works in mysterious ways.
When we take up the mantle to complete the 1 accomplishment. We take up 1 idea. That idea should be your life–think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.
And, success breeds success. It becomes a wonderful circle of accomplishment. This success leads to the next accomplishment on your list… and the next… and the next… etc…
The most important aspect of all this is you keep these accomplishments to yourself. Never gloat and brag to others. After all, they are yours and yours alone. The Universe will reward your accomplishments in due time.
