Inspiring Designers Across the Globe: Making Sense of the Art of Doing


The Last Week: 7 days of Inspiring Designers

by Atim Annette Oton

This July, I decided to write a short series of inspiring notes for designers on my Facebook page called Lesson of the Day. It was simple, a daily motivational paragraph to inspire designers and others to rise early and do what they need to do: I will write four parts to this post of the 31 days of lessons. The last week ended today, so I am posting the lessons of the day for the last week with images and will post more next week.

Love your work. Love your dreams. Love yourself. Life is about passion. Do what you love and enjoy life. Work your dreams. Work your passion. Work your life missions. Be your work. Be your passion. Be you. Life is a dream. Make it worth it. Make it happen. There is bliss in life. Life is joy. Life is amazing. Life is yours.

Life is a journey that comes with bends and twists. It is not straight or simple. It is complex and complicated. Expect no peace or solitude. It comes with hills and valleys. Learn to ride life as it is a moving ocean wave. Set a course or path but expect diversions. The journey is the experience. Celebrate and enjoy it in all is joys and challenges.

Life has many options. You have to be willing to see them and make a choice. Each one is a risk and each one can take you ahead or back. You have to analyze each option you select. Each has a beginning, middle and an end. Work it out. Then engage. Life is a risk.

It takes courage to change things. Gather your strength and build your courage but banish fear. Step outside and step ahead. Life is calling you to act. Be smart and do your best.

Shine brightly. Yes, shine even more. Life is yours to bask in. Shine. The moon and sun are shinning on you. Step up to the plate and take the glory. It is time. Be bold, be smart. Live it. Live fully. Live with powerful spirit.

Focus. Focus. Focus. Invest your energy to make your dream come through. Spend time and resources to make it, through trial and error, experimentation and risk. Pass through the tunnel of fear into the light of reality. Focus is the one ingredient.

The last week of Lesson of the Day focused on 7 ideas and themes: Passion, Journey, Choices. Courage, Change, Embrace and Focus. Each theme was to move a designer forward. Come back next week to read about the third week.
