Outliers: The Story of Success

Three Takeaways:

  • Sometimes, closed doors force you into open ones. In the podcast, Sid Mashburn shared how a closed door, for him, meant getting fired. That led to a new beginning in Atlanta. An ended opportunity may feel like heartbreak in the moment, but it s more than likely leading you to a better one.
  • Things go stale when you don t create. You might not like what you create, nor will your creations always become a finished product, but remember, creativity is like a muscle it has to be exercised to grow.

  • Great designers are great noticers. Look around inspiration is everywhere. Whether it s your environment or something you admire from someone else, be open to being inspired anywhere at any time.
