Jokes at the clients' expense
^ This. Is. Hilarious!

And completely true for interior design as well as web design. I have learned two things that a designer must know in order to avoid this situation:

1. The designer must gain the client's trust and confidence. If your client does not trust your design abilities and intuition, they will feel the need to take over. This can be disastrous.

2. The designer must know how and when to say, "No," and occasionally, "Absolutely not. You are completely incorrect/misinformed." It takes confidence, but is necessary.

Kicking like a motherf*cker

"...the best creators are like ducks. They appear to glide along serenely on the surface. Beneath the surface, however, they’re kicking like a motherf*cker." -Timothy Ferris

I am drawing inspiration and determination from the greats! I really enjoyed this blog post by Timothy Ferris, the author of The 4-Hour Work Week.

Hope it gives you as much drive and motivation as it gave me!
