Empowered designers, are happier humans. Happier humans create better experiences.
A design version 10 is always better than the version 1.
Communicate as much as possible
Listen actively. Ask questions. Share knowledge.
Collaborate with non-designers
Bring engineers, POs and other stakeholders to design with you.
Talk to yourself
"Am I good at that skill?" Do you have a clear and realistic perception of who you are?
Be nice and respectful
Nobody wants to work with an asshole.
