Hello beautiful people,
What is the best advice you've ever received and in what context do you feel it had helped you in your life/career?
It could be advice in your life in general or advice in your design career.
This is mine:
Best life advice:
"When something unfavorable happened to you, most of the time the cause is within yourself. Don't blame your surrounding or the system around you, change yourself so it won't happen to you again".
From Andrew Matthews' book - Being Happy!
Pretty straightforward, this advice has changed my mindset and guided me to conduct self-improvement and self-reflection whenever I feel down in whatever aspect of my life.
Best design career advice:
"Keeps on making, making, making. The only way to close the gap between your work and your idol's work is just by keep on making tons of crap works until your work becomes not so crap."
From Jonathan Kim - Rare Volume
Similarly, I received this advice a few years back from Johnason Lo from JL Design. That was when I always struggle in creating good-looking style frames due to lack of technical capabilities.
There was always a gap between what I have in my head and the design that I was able to create.
He told me that if making style frame is my weakness than I just simply have to keep on making style frame until I become better.
So, what are yours?
