People can define success in many different ways. I describe it as my personal journey, a way to conquer some of my past disappointments. As an older person, I see the fulfillment of my projects as a momentous achievement that I have worked hard to finish.
Younger ones may see success as the end goal of getting a better job or moving up and being counted among the educated elite. Success for me means finishing a journey that I started some years back. Things got in the way of my trip, so success is really a personal journey for me that I continue on and not defined by materialism, or any such vices that seem to trip many up. The journey for me is the sense of accomplishment I feel when I have done a job that benefits others.
The strategies that I have learned to employ helped me developed my own systematic approach to accomplishing projects. It has served me quite well and keeps me on track with my assignments.
- I use note-taking and project management apps since I use these to keep track of new creative projects. I employ their use for keeping notes and scheduling out my time as well making sure I can see an overview of my work.
- I remain as active as possible in web development, project management, and men’s wear community. I am a self-learner; I heavily engage with other creators to help me get an edge on what I am working on. Hopefully, the comments, perspectives, or thoughts of others help me understand and fine-tune my focus on the subject or project at hand.
- I ask lots of questions, which can help me mentally form the best approach; different perspectives provide a better view of the project. The diversity of thought helps me see angles I myself did not consider.
Although I work long hours developing applications and working in men’s wear, I hope that I can finish everything on time and do my best to do so. Thanks for taking the time to read mu musings with the hope that I can inspire others to do the same.
So I included a brief history of my ventures. I also had Toro Media Group which continued as a separate site mostly for business information and to handle private branding work. There was a full-blown company that sprung from Toro Media Group, called Park City Desktop, a training facility that was started for new designers.
It was a nice ride and even though I never really grew the ventures like I intended to do. I learned valuable lessons on running a business, dealing with clients and vendors. On conducting an honest business with a solid business plan in place and how to manage the bottom line. I enjoyed the love of working on new ventures and the challenges that it presented.
