Stepping back and assessing your progress

Library of an Interaction Designer (Juhan Sonin) / 20100423.7D.0

This morning, I took some time to categorize all of my posts and videos, and what I learned in the process kind of amazed me.

I’ve written several times on the importance of stepping back from what you’re engaged in every once in a while. It let’s you look at your work and your progress holistically. It’s really easy to get caught up in the present, but I realized this morning that it’s important to step back.

What I found was that there are subtle details I don’t always give attention to, which could change the way I work and the effectiveness of what I do. I’ve now implemented small changes that I never would have seen had I not taken the time to go through my work objectively.

So, every now and then, step back from what you’re doing. Make sure you’re still on track to achieve your goals. Note any changes or improvements you think you could make, and then implement them. What works today will not always work tomorrow, so keep reassessing. Stay focused on your progression as a whole, and keep improving.
