Personal Blog I Neglect Thee No More!

It’s been a while since I last made a post on this my personal blog and I have my business to blame for that! EMDFX has surely kept me busy and the only writing I do these days are graphic oriented as seen by the fact that ‘The Design Lounge‘ stays updated. But I shall be neglecting my personal blog no more. While I won’t be posting as often as I used to, I will be trying to get even 2 posts in per month.

The reason I decided to come back here is the fact that there is sooooo much that I really want to share that I’ve learned from launching a business in Jamaica, all the running around which that requires and the headaches. However it’s not all bad as I have more respect for those who have successfully done it before me.

Another thing which I should have probably mentioned first is the fact that I was recently introduced to Brian Tracy by my li’l sister and he has completely changed the way I think and handle my business. This guy is not just a motivational author, he is a phenomenal motivational author. If you’ve never checked him out you definitely should do so today.

So bear with me, I will be motivating the hell out of you guys soon!

Push Boundaries

The best designers push the boundaries on what’s acceptable, they take chances.

Inside the world of graphic design it is easy to get lost in the crowd, play it safe and just do what everybody else is doing. But why should you want to limit yourself and your creativity to something which has been done repeatedly by others before you? Are you a recycling plant?

Strive to be different, strive to stand out! When people speak of you and your work there should be a little excitement attached to it. Even amongst graphic artists you should be able to elicit some sort of reaction other than “Oh, he’s aiight”.

In a time like this where everybody who gets a copy of Photoshop suddenly becomes a graphic designer, ensure that you don’t get lost in that crowd.

My next post will be about how I strive stand out in this cut throat field [yes my own personal experience].

Granted I may not yet be the best, but I’m working on getting there one day.
