My 5 takeaways from “Show Your Work” as a UX Designer

1. “Creativity is always, in some sense, a collaboration, the result of a mind connected to other minds.”

2. “The best way to get started on the path to sharing your work is to think about what you want to learn, and make a commitment to learning it in front of others”

3. “Once a day, after you’ve done your day's work, go back to your documentation and find one little piece of your process that you can share”

4. “How people feel and what they understand about your work affects how they value it”

5. “Anyone who isn’t embarrassed of who they were last year probably isn’t learning enough”
