This concept of thinking, working, living, etc. came to me many years. I have a very analytical brain with OCD tendencies and I am constantly evaluating everything I do to see if there is a better way. I soon realized that ultimately, what I was analyzing was the “Work vs Worth Ratio” of everything.
Is the amount of work it takes to complete something going to be worth it? If not, then is there a better way? A different way? A newer way? Does it even need to be done if it isn’t worth it?
This kind of thinking and reevaluating is what pushes me to keep getting better as a professional, a designer, a coder, and a maker.
