On the road to a Graphic Designer - AchievementsA dream becomes a goal when action is taken toward its achievement. - Bo Bennett
Achievements – The steps I took so far
“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” – Theodore Roosevelt
If you study the biographies of successful people, you will find that it is not where they came from or started out that influenced their success but rather their habits and ways of thinking. Success has a lot to do with self-determination, believing in yourself and in your team. Building skills for the future is not always easy and pleasant but it is in fact the most important.
Unfortunately, I do not have the option to study at the university at this instance (even though I would love it) and I do believe that time is the essence. Therefore, I choose not to be limited by my location nor am I waiting for better times. Here are the steps I already took to build the skills I may need in the (hopefully near) Future.
Courses are a great way to learn a new skill relatively fast. On the other hand it does need way more self-determination. So be careful for the comfort of your own chosen location at your own chosen time not to get you!
Choosing your own way of learning might be tricky! Watching youtube tutorials all day is much easier than reading books. Especially if it is in a foreign language! But the truth is that reading boosts your vocabulary, improves memory, increases creativity and the ability to focus. Therefore, books are irreplaceable in learning process.
