The key is to “keep your eye on the prize”. I see so many possibilities ahead, although at times those may seem just out of reach. I’m satisfied with all the new knowledge we’re picking up, since much of it stimulates ideas in other directions, but the training itself isn’t moving quite as fast as I had hoped. So much to do, so little time. The scheduling of the classes is out of my control so we can only wait for the final two classes to start up, in another 6 weeks.
Still, it’s a very satisfying experience and at some point I know I’ll miss the “traveling” part once we’ve reached our destination.
I’m working on several designs for the existing portfolio folders, and I have two more folders in mind which will be posted after the existing ones are completed, although they are directed more to business-to-business than to end consumer. The online organic software class is giving us trouble, it’s not well organized and not as learning friendly as I expected. Portions of it are based on intuitive thinking and testing rather than outright explanation. An unexpected curve. The previous six high end commercial softwares I was trained in showed you how to use a particular design function for particular solutions with a one-on-one instructor. You asked a question, it was answered. There was no testing involved.
So we go forward, one step at a time, expecting to meet our milestones. Looking forward to our October opening.
