I’m kicking off a theme on The Etch Podcast
for the next few weeks called #destroythedefaults
. I’m ever-more aware that some people are not engaged in the work that they’re doing due to feeling they can’t contribute in a meaningful way.
I found this a couple of years ago working at Wiggle. Few will rarely tell you how to do your job exactly, which opens up the opportunity to show everyone the true value you can bring. After a while, I became the go-to-person on how to solve design problems and getting more comfortable in saying “we don’t know, let’s find out.”
I’m interested in talking to more people that are challenging the status-quo in the companies that they work with. With the internet, we’re being exposed to new ways of working and we need the courage to start actually using them, instead of procrastinating by reading and thinking “I wish I could do that.”
