We are attracted to the new, to what is fresh, to what is different. The thing that is breaking the norm. Breaking the mold. Or as graphic and type designers say “breaking the grid”.
Your clients and daily practices have helped you create your grid. Your needs, wants, likes and dislikes shaped that grid too. And therein lies the DNA of your career—What clients/practices/projects/ways of communication/work schedules/tools do you like the most? Let these stay.
The things that annoy and overwhelm you? Break the grid and stop doing them.
Or you change your perception about them.
