Everyone here at the studio knows we have a ton of CAD work to do this week, and I'm not even sure we'll be able to get it all done. But I do know we'll be clicking keys non-stop until it's all complete.
This morning, as one of my assistants was coming into the studio, she proved to me in a simple text message how she, too, understands how urgently this week's work needs to be completed:
”Just arrived @ studio & I'm firing-up the CAD!"
Instantly, a feeling of relief rushed over me. Her text expressed how she was burnin’ to move our work forward and out the door - just like I am. I LOVE THAT! She was obviously feeling driven. And as the person whose name is etched across our logo, instances such as this give me comfort, because they prove how this studio is strengthened by a support team that can be trusted to get things done, with both efficiency and quality.
As my stress towards the week began to settle, my mind suddenly became free to feel appreciative . . . towards people with positive attitudes . . . towards people who have an optimistic outlook towards the future . . . and towards the fact that this career I love provides me with the privilege of being able to frequently surround myself with people who can be as driven as I am.
What is it about go-getters that cause them to naturally have a burning desire to move forward, change things, create, invent, progress, dream?
Would you say you fit this personality-type? Are you an artist who's DRIVEN?
LINK LOVE OPPORTUNITY ;-)
Down below you'll find a series of questions and inspirational images regarding the characteristics of a person who has a driven personality. As you'll see, there are already a few people who have contributed their own unique insight regarding how they manage certain aspects of their go-get'em attitude, and I'd like for you to share your unique insights as well by finding a question that moves you, then Tweeting me your response using the Twitter button below. I'm accepting one answer per question.
Can you work all night on a project because it has to be perfect?
Do you not consider something to be finished until that last bit of tweaking is worked out? And is “not done” an unacceptable phrase to say at the end of a long day of designing?
Are you bored easily?
Does repetitive work feel mind-numbing and predictable? And do those two words make your stomach churn?
If something isn’t working the way you want it to in your life, are you vigorously searching for what will make it work?
Are you constantly fine-tuning your work methods?
Are you always happy and thankful for moments when you're able to learn from your mistakes?
Do you make mental notes that sound something like...?
”Okay, I needed to learn that. There's no need to beat yourself up over this mishap. Everything is going to be alright. I'll do better next time."
Is everything in your life a work-in-progress?
If so, is it because no matter how good you get, you know there's still plenty of room for you to learn, improve, get better?
Do you obsess over details?
If things aren’t well thought out, and you aren’t confident in how they will play out, do you just keep going, no matter how late it is?
. . . Each of the above questions has nagged every single go-getter, make-things-happen, don’t-take-"No"-for-an-answer, strive-to-be-better-kind-of-person there's ever been!
And I LOVE working with people like this!
Oh . . . It's better to be "well-rounded?"
Give me someone who is not sitting around waiting for life to happen to them.
Give me someone who is tirelessly and intensely searching for ways to improve themselves and their lives, searching for more knowledge, more experiences, more understanding. After all . . .
Anything is possible when you surround yourself with people who are DRIVEN!
