Moving into a new mentality
Waking up to a pleasant surprise approaching the end of 2021. I was awarded with Golden Mentor Award by ADPList community. It truly touched me that in a recent group session that I taught, multiple product designers joined in Europe around their time in the midnight on a weekend evening!
I cannot remember since exactly when, helping other designers become better and more successful starts to bring me incredibly amount of joy and gratification. As I'm teaching and coaching more designers, I often think about the various great design masters that touched my life during my schooling and every phase of the career so far these days. Not only do they impress me with unstoppable drive for design excellence, more importantly they teach me to be brutally honest to uncover truth about humanity and to help other people live better through design.
What a fortunate life we get to live as designers :)
