Wednesday Style Points: Designing Life As A Process
As the New Year begins, I want to share one of my favorite things
Yup, sounds rather silly…but I love it
I cannot make a spreadsheet, remember?
I cannot find the receipt, remember?
But I CAN design…and so I design PROCESSES or SYSTEMS that work for life + business
SYSTEMS that are easy to replicate
PROCESSES that are easy to duplicate
…CUSTOMIZABLE to the Client or Situation or my own life!
I actually LOVE creating these
Because sometimes there is just too much input “out there”
Do you ever feel like you can’t possibly get all the research done to make a decision you are proud of?
Do you then just throw in the towel and jump before you should?
Or before you think you should?
As a Designer I have created these custom systems my whole career to help me prevent:
Researching to the point of indecision
Leaping before I know I should
Flipping out on the fall after I’ve made an unchangeable design leap
These little systems help me:
Decide + Do with No Regret
They give me boundaries that are pleasant
Not too much – not too little
I can stretch them – make them more complicated if need be or keep them super simple if needed
I even teach them in our Couture Chateau Seminars
So am kind of a dork for these systems
I then turn them into matrix
In pretty drawings of course 😉
All color coordinated boxes with proper shading & highlighting…
But matrix just the same
Why I like them?
Style Points 🙂
You have them, remember?! It’s how you embrace the process of living
Over the course of the next year I will be sharing some of my favorite systems with you and how we use them
How we stretch them or shrink them
What has worked for us
And hopefully will work for you
For now? Style Points!
I’d love to know some of yours!!
Share. I know you have them. Because you are YOU!
