Every day is a surprise.
I have learned that the act of making coffee (and maybe also smelling the coffee) is what wakes me up—not actually drinking it. I’ve learned that traffic isn’t so bad when you don’t have to fight it everyday. I’ve learned that if you actually like the work you do you don’t count the minutes until lunch or the days until the weekend—in fact, sometimes you forget to eat lunch until late in the afternoon and you work through the weekend because you are enjoying it that much.
I am learning so much about business and design and people and myself that I’m almost embarrassed that I ever pretended to know anything at all. I have so much to learn and so much to do, and I am so grateful that I have this time to do it.
