About UX Sketching

Sketching freehand is a whole new way to collaborate creatively.  Be that as a designer or an engineer. It’s a medium to jot ideas, visually. It gives us numerous advantages and should not be ignored, It is a more natural, artistic form of communication. You may not be a designer. But inherently, accordingly to Don Norman, everyone is.

It’s great way to improve your creative skills and start thinking in a different way. Art shows you that there is normally more than one way to solve a problem.

One Bag Challenge

 

Getting Packed

I became really interested in the idea of what it would be like to live entirely out of one bag for a while. The purpose is to evaluate my own connections to spending money on possessions, how living like that might alter one’s finances, and whether shifting to a much more minimalist lifestyle could actually work.

I really encourage you to try out the “one bag challenge.” Make it your goal for a week or two weeks or even a month to live as much as you can out of the contents of one bag or suitcase and one backpack. Try to get all of your clothing, hygiene needs, entertainment, work, and even food out of those bags and just see how it goes for you. You might come to some really interesting conclusions about how you live your “normal” life, conclusions that may change how you spend and save your money.

I hope most of you would have seen What’s In Your Backpack? scene from Up In The Air movie.

We all carry around unnecessary ‘baggage’ with us which makes each day harder than it needs to be and holds us back from really doing what we want which is what makes the “What’s In Your Backpack” so relevant to each and every one of us.

Soul Filling Solo

solo movie poster

Solo is an anthology of four tales based on four elements – Fire, Water, Wind and Earth. Dulquer Salmaan is the common element, playing four different characters in each story. And this incredible feat has earned him a lot of praise from the critics, though they were less favorable for the movie’s treatment and preference to style over substance.

Bejoy ‘s writing is joyful and engaging, and he has used different color tones, music and even backdrop for the four stories.

Overall, Solo is a gorgeous-looking film. It has its definitive colour and some cosy moments.

Insecurities can be your worst enemy.  Think of a task or an action you can’t motivate yourself to do. Create a mental picture how you will take action. Now colorize the picture with bright and vivid colors. It produces great results. The trick is to be positive and remain persistent

Moving on isn’t easy.

One reason why people feel stuck is because they don’t have a clear thoughts on how to rid of the problems; they don’t really know where they want to go. Spending time on getting clear about what you want to achieve will help you get there sooner.

I know stories never really end, even if you pretend they do. Stories always go on.

Clear your baggage. Acknowledge, accept and let go of your feelings.

Don’t Grow Up, It’s a Trap

Don’t Grow Up, It’s a Trap
Don’t you sometimes wish you could be a kid again?

We all would have uttered the title at least once, either as a joke, or we truly mean it when we miss our adolescence.
I agree with what Pablo Picasso said,
“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”
