things I learned this week: aug 27


Continuing the trend, here are some things I learned this past week:

  • The absolute importance of critique, and why we do it [1]
  • Always ask "why?" to identify the root cause of an issue
  • Be concise and polite when cold emailing; most people are willing to help [2]
  • The bigger your sketchbook, the more room for ideas and iteration [3]
  • Having a good idea is only half the work. Having the charisma and swagger to convince others to work on your idea is really the hard part. [4]

Thanks for reading.
