The importance of being challenged

One of the things I love about what I do is that no two client projects are ever the same. I learn so much with each one.

Sometimes that can be super challenging and I’ve said “I have no idea how to do this but I know it can be done” on an almost daily basis. After more than ten years of continually figuring out the “how” side of that statement, I feel like my skills toolbox is in good shape and my brain has stayed relatively sharp (though tired at times!).

There are still so many things I need to learn, but challenging myself with each and every project has helped me remain confident that there’s a “how” for every situation – even if nobody has created one yet.

In an industry where things change very rapidly, grooming yourself to accept change, learn new things, and trust your reputation is what really keeps you relevant and moving in the right direction.

In what ways are you challenging yourself today?
