Fail forwards of my career
Mistakes I've learned from
Stating "we will create the best app with the most satisfying designs". That was a bad idea.
Take away: State clear expectation and delivery outcomes. Otherwise you design and design and design...
Assuming the client knows the design process.
Take away: Understand what they know and how they work and be open to also adjust the process to their needs. Otherwise you work on 8 screens for 1 year...
Adding more people to a project to deliver faster.
Take away: New team member deserve on-boarding time which is often underestimated.
Not trusting in my own skills and let others kill my mojo.
Take away: Don't take critique personal, but also point out if it felt personal.
