Trent Bryanhower – Graphic Designer from Austin, TX
I can’t believe it took me this long to add a short meditation and a cup of tea to my afternoon! The effect has been quite transformative. I went from sluggishly trudging through afternoons at the office to sustained, natural energy that lasts through the day. Even my co-workers have taken notice of my increased positivity.
Just yesterday I was at a team meeting to discuss an ad campaign. It was for one of our top clients – a company we’d been working with for years. The issue was that they were starting to lose confidence in our agency due to a lack of fresh ideas. Well, at this meeting I took the reigns like I never have before and dictated the pace of the entire meeting. I sketched ideas on the whiteboard, asked the right questions to my teammates, and felt for the first time that I have what it takes to be a good designer.
It was a cool moment in my career and something that I’ll aspire to do more often.
