A.B.C. Always Be Creating

Always Be Creating. This is important to growth as a design thinker. The more that you create, the more you will be confident with the process of creating. Creating can be a rough journey especially when you don’t do it often. When you don’t exercise your design thinking muscles, frustration can set in causing you to give up. You have to push through. What you’re making may be ugly but its a step in the process. Allow yourself to fail and make ugly things. 

Creating isn’t just about drawing, painting or writing. You can create in the kitchen with new dishes. Arranging your backyard in a way that works for your family is creating. Even selfies taken to artfully conceal a few extra pounds take some design thinking. (I’ve never done that. Only heard of people who do. *cough*) Thinking of new ways to do something that you do everyday is creating.
