Your Roadmap for the Rest of Summer

Eight to nine months out of the year, we’re mostly just daydreaming about summer. Sure, we get our work done! But from time to time, we slip off to some magically warm place where meetings and classes and to-do lists don’t exist. Still, June inevitably rolls arounds more quickly than we expected, and before we know it, our calendars fill up with auto-pilot activities, just like they do for the...

“I Know What I Want…Now What Do I Do?”

So: you’ve identified what you want to do, and found a career path that you think will stimulate your curiosity, align with your beliefs, and combine your interests — good for you!

Design Roadtrip: Final Thoughts

After 6355.4 miles, 21 states, and countless enlightening interviews, the Design Roadtrip has finally come to a close!

“If You Fail, That’s Just A Chapter in the Story…”

But what happens when you feel like you’ve wandered off the path? How do you deal with writer’s block? This weekend’s youtube playlist is full of Leaders who have gotten creative, followed their hearts, and...

99U Take Aways: Joshua Davis – The Pitfalls of Success
