“Shape of design” is a talk by Frank Chimero in Build Conference around 4 years ago.
Frank Chimero – The Shape of Design from Build on Vimeo.

Here I go. It’s happening again. I am on daily writing challenge, so I have to write. I sit infront of the computer, and there it is; a blank page and a blank mind, stuck. What to write? 10 minutes gone, 20, 30, damn, 1 hour and what’ve I written so far? none, I switched couple of music playlist, played and stopped instrumentals on focusatwill.com, read some James Altucher’s blog posts on writing tips, but still I don’t have any idea what shall i write.
So I have decided to just start and write about writing. And here you go, 102 words already. Relief! 400 to go. Now i’m having a quick cheat-look on Facebook wall, just to find i can find anything to write… Ok, back to writing…

So how do I keep winning the design projects? Here are 2 quick tips (among many) that I follow:
The world is a scary place. I think everyone knows it. But they don’t. Only those who experience the fear know it. But again, everyone experiences it once in a while, right? Continue reading
2014 has been a wonderful year. The year I will always remember as the year of biggest failures and biggest lessons. Here are some of the important lessons i learned:
Failing is ok.
In fact, it’s good. Someone has said “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone”. In 2014, I experienced a big financial crisis. Until then my company was running smoothly, as I considered myself not a business-minded person, I used to be happy with the survivable amount of work and earnings. But this year business slowed down and I faced lots of troubles. This big crisis or failure has taught me some very good lessons. Getting organised and financial planning are the two most important things I learned from failure this year. Continue reading
