#daily365 – Design Something Every Day

Just read this post by Jad Limcaco. In it he raises the question, do we spend too much time searching the internet for inspiration and not enough time creating? Shoot… I do.

I admit to wasting 100’s of hours searching the internet for something or other. Now years later. There’s nothing to show.

Thinking back, my greatest moments of learning and creativity were triggered by jumping right into a new app or project. The design/web development techniques I use daily for my professional work developed organically through this ‘total immersion’ technique.

Not by ‘reading’ – but by ‘doing’.

The Challenge

Design something everyday. For 365 days. I’ve been thinking about doing something like this for years. Reading through the comments on the post it seems like we were all thinking about it.

Much like the 190+ commenters, it lit a fire under my butt to get working.
