How to turn on/off the creation switch
As designers we always look for opportunities to make a product or experience better. But sometimes we carry this into our personal lives which can lead to frustrations and conflicting relationships. It's important to build habits that trains our minds when we are designing and when we are not so we don't burn out. Vipassana mediation can help us become more present to identify these situations.
How to summon creativity more often
Between exploring the problem and creating the solution, there is a middle part: insights/ideas. As we move into a leadership role, we are expected to tap into this more often. This is where a clear process and a headspace ritual comes to the rescue.
How to readjust our level of happiness
Our emotions define our creation. As our careers evolve from execution to leadership, there will be frustrations. To address this, we need to recalibrate what makes us happy at every stage. If we spend less time executing, we need to think of other ways to bring back execution. This can be through outside work or volunteer opportunities.
