On Medium

Sharing ideas and experiences moves humanity forward. –Medium

It’s really hard to keep up with the rest of the world, but there’s something I really love about the chase.

When I left my first job out of college, I did so because I felt like I wasn’t learning enough. The notion that repetition creates perfection is fundamentally flawed. Doing the same thing over and over again will only make you good at doing that one thing over and over again. Now the prospect of doing something that requires adaptability by virtue of its technical complexity or reliance on creativity – the kind of thing that renders you expendable because you forgot to keep up with your industry’s trending news – that’s just so much more fun.

I’m cursed with an insatiable appetite for acute stress. I’m lucky that researchers have just found out that some stress is apparently good for you, because there’s no shortage of stress from the steep learning curve of becoming a designer.

If an article or blog post is design-related, I tend to read it. If it’s running-related, I read it. Of course, they have to be well written, occasionally humorous, sincere, and maybe even humanistic, which isn’t always easy to find.

Then I discovered Medium. It reminds me of all the great things that people are capable of doing and suddenly… short essays have made a comeback.
