Today is the first day of 2013. A day when almost every person that I know is thinking about the changes that they're going to make in their life.
I've never been fond of arbitrary markers in time. Birthdays, anniversaries, even holidays - they all seem strange to me and I've never been one to get excited and celebrate them.
Web design and development is an ever evolving profession that is quite different than it was just a few years ago. It is a continually improving field and the competition is constantly growing more intense. If you want to stay with the best, you must improve your own skills. One exercise that I do every so often is to look back on my previous work and designs. I want to share with you some of my thoughts and lessons that I have learned in this exercise. Some of the lessons I'm about to share with you can be abstracted into life lessons and more than just development or design lessons.
