“It’s very important at the end of the day for me to know I’ve made something.” This is from a discussion between Debbie Millman and Matthew Carter on an episode of Design Matters. It really struck a chord for me, as I’ve been noticing my competing urges to “make history” and “carry buckets” (see my post from a few days ago). I do think no matter to which direction I feel more pulled, I always feel best when there is something real that I can point to and say, “I made that.” How about you? Do you find it important to know you’ve made something each day? What are you making today?
