Early new year’s resolution: a goal & a barrier.

Amongst all the great things which happened during my company design retreat, the greatest meta benefit for me personally was that the experience sharpened my focus for choosing the path I walk. I’m sharing this one piece specifically because it concisely puts out there, and serves as a reminder for myself, what my intentions are for life. [1]

Some context: the task was the choose 2 images. One which represented the goal, the other which represents a barrier which stands between you and goal.

Goal. I’m interested in creating something. But I have no idea what. Hence, here’s a blueprint sketch with a blackbox and a question mark. All I know now is that it needs to be of good, positive impact on the world.

I drew this in a few seconds using Sketchbook Xpress for mobile.

Barrier. And, the first step is to shed my baggage. There are just so many things from the past I still admit to having the hardest time getting over. I will eventually dispell these inhibiting experiences which prevent the fullest. On a good course - the first step: Knowing I deserve better, so each experience from here on out are in my control.
