One of the most important pieces of advice I read urged me to not procrastinate. Due to the nature of the class, long term projects allow for procrastination. However, I plan to establish a strict schedule for myself during the week in order to maximize productivity. Although my classes start around one o’clock everyday, I will rise early and head to the library. I am easily distracted, but working in the library will help me focus. Additionally, going to the library immediately after waking up will let me get straight to work, and allow for no time to second guess myself. Another piece of advice I read was to strive to design my best work. I am a perfectionist, and set very high standards for myself. Therefore in this class, I want to take risks and push the boundaries of my designs, in order to make thoughtful, creative, and innovative work that I am proud of.
