Ownership

One of the things I’ve learnt over the last six months is, to be a great designer you need to take ownership of the things you do and how you do them…

Take ownership of the design of your product or project: You are the designer. Stand up for what you think is important. Speak for the users. Make your team see and understand what you feel is important.

Take ownership of the design process: If you don’t, who will? Don’t wait for others to tell you what to do. You are probably more qualified than PMs, tech leads or business managers to make decisions on the best methods to arrive at the best solutions.
