I was speaking with Peleg Top, designer and design business coach, and he shared a aphorism that applies to any disgruntled in-house designer. When working with a client, one of the first things he says is (and I’m paraphrasing here) – If things are going wrong in your business the fist place you should look at is you. Chances are there’s something you’re doing , or more likely not doing, that is perpetuating or creating the undesireable circumstances you’re working in.
To put it another way, take responsibility for your situatuation even though it’s not your fault. By taking ownership of the problem you’re empowering yourself to change it.
