Dear Friend 2

We didn’t know each other, yet we sat together for hours.

And after those hours, it was clear that kindness and imagination come as second nature to you. 

All your attributes pull together a great team (team being you and all your hallmark traits that you are composed of).

You’ve got curiosity and enthusiasm by your side, and a persistence that keeps on giving.

If more people knew your story, you’d be a hero—but that’s not how you roll which is okay. 

Everything Went As Planned

This is something that few people can say right now. 

We’re all facing a moment of turbulence, and we’ve all had to make pivots and tweaks to our lives. You’re not the only one.

In this moment when nothing is going as planned, the solution is to embrace it and move forward as a group—not to leave others behind, not to distance ourselves and create blame.

The question going forward is, how can we reconnect with each other and help do the work that is needed right now? 

As Advertised

What’s the difference between a teapot that pours tea all over the table versus a designer in the office who doesn’t care about their clients? 

They’re both lousy at what they do, because they only do bits of the job well. 

Beyond the actual designs a designer produces, they must also understand their client’s wants, be able to communicate, and be able to make their client feel listened to. 

A teapot must be functional, and the brewed tea must pour out into the cup without spilling everywhere else, because that would make it a lousy teapot rather than a good teapot.

Do what it is you set out to do, and do it well because the alternative will be subpar.
