Which One Are You?

Designer is more of a MacBookPro than an iMac.

I believe one of the many challenges of being a designer is to work. Designer bounds to be free, out of the box and dynamic, something that work does not commonly offer.

Have you ever wondered why there are so many design freelancers out there? That is simply because designer normally can't stand being in a confined room with room dividers, where writing on the glass panels is forbidden and laughing out loud is reduced to a minimum. 

It is a challenge for us, to sit still on a chair an stare on the computer screen. After all, we are all human who need interaction. 

So, if that's the case, why don't we work in a better environment?

By all means:
1. Be where you can be yourself
There is no point in being in a room for eight hours a day and you can't express who you are.
2. Have a good support system
Surround yourself with people that resound with you. Not that you want to keep yourself in comfort, but simply to move you from your seat and make progress. Build a community that enables you to perform at your best.
3. Share 
You share = you gain. Nothing is more horrible than keeping things to yourself. It is bad for you and for people around you.

Don't forget that where ever you are right now is just a journey not the goal yet. Don't stop looking!
