How does one summarize such an adventure? If I could name one highlight of my career at Payment Systems Group, this would be it. The entire year! The creative talent I worked with, the personal growth, and the joy of being immersed in creative work… makes every hardship worth it!
What did I learn? To start, I love creative work and problem solving. I’m not a lone wolf… and work better with other big thinkers. I’m a detail person and naturally focus there, and I need other visionaries to expand my horizons.
Trusted outsiders are essential to bring new perspectives. Let my beliefs about my processes, my customers, and what they want be challenged. Let go of “what I know for sure” more easily.
Wild turns down seemingly wrong paths can take you to new heights of discovery. I need to speak my heart more often. It seems to love design too and usually knows which way to point… but I need to verbalize it.
And mostly… there’s an amazing flow when I do creative work with talented people in a fun environment!
