Immerse Yourself in Design

Eat, Think, Breath Design: Immerse yourself in design. You must taste design in your sleep! Know about design and its leaders like the back of your hand. There's podcast, YouTube channels, and medium blogs to keep you in the know.

Choose a Role

Honestly, immersion isn't enough. I need you to drown please. Drown in design.

How bad do you really want a role in design? Would you wake up in the middle of the night and listen to a new episode of The Futur? Would you play UX design podcast during your morning and afternoon commute? Would you volunteer for non-profit organizations to give your new skills a whirl with real world dilemmas? If I called you right now, would you be reading a book about design? I'll be at a local UX meetup today, would I see you? This is the kind of energy I need from you! Eat, sleep, think, breath, and pee design! Seriously.

Absorb as much knowledge as you can. There is lots of information out there and I have a few chosen places I go to hear about design's latest and greatest. I try to get my hands on all types of resources in all different areas of design because you never know what would peak my interest that day.
