Commentary on Design

"2. 95 percent of any creative profession is shit work.
Only 5 percent is actually, in some simplistic way, fun. In school that is what you focus on; it is 100 percent fun. Tick-tock. In real life, most of the time there is paper work, drafting boring stuff, fact-checking, negotiating, selling, collecting money, paying taxes, and so forth. If you don’t learn to love the boring, aggravating, and stupid parts of your profession and perform them with diligence and care, you will never succeed."

This is a pretty interesting article. It can be applied to almost any profession that doesn't concern impending loss of life (and in some cases it's still applicable). But for now we'll stick to art and design: Michael McDonough’s Top Ten Things They Never Taught Me in Design School
