13 Podcasts Every Designer Should Listen To

Every designer has a different way of “plugging in” when they start working on a new design. Listening to music is probably one of the best options when you go on a design sprint. You might prefer putting on a guilty-pleasure TV show in the background. But once in a while, you might want to switch it up and learn something new while you design your upcoming masterpiece.

So I compiled a list of every great design podcast to help you focus, gain inspiration, and stay entertained while you design. We’ve got everything from funny shows related to the industry to the best tech podcasts about design to podcasts that will help you look at your designs in a new way.

Life Lessons Sam Haider

5 life lessons from a CEO of Major Investment Company

Hello Beautiful People! I hope days are being good with you.

It`s been a long time that I wrote any post and I thought this is the time I should share with you one of the best VIP classroom I had. Since it`s VIP and exlcusive to Nation Building School gurus only I can`t name the speaker and provide other details but below are the top 5 lessons he shared with us.

1. Always refrain from judging a person, put yourself in another perspective by asking what led them there?

2. Beware of the “unholy triad” of power, wealth and (wo)men!

3. Don’t try to outsmart the system, because it will always catch up with you and be the last of you.

4. Always be humble and don’t believe in your own hype.

5. Be reflective of yourself as if you’re looking into the mirror as much as you can.

Grab

GrabCar Exposed! What is GrabShare?

So, Grab just launch their new product or service “GRABSHARE” I am not really sure what to name it.

Today, when I went to meet my client I used GrabShare. The driver was not really sure what`s the difference between GrabCar and GrabShare and I went explaining him, but at the same time, I realized what GrabCar is actually doing now.

I am really impressed and see there struggling to come up with a solution for a world problem and they have been trying to do it for quite some time as I observed.

I have found my weakness!!!

So, it`s been going good since I wrote my last post in 2016. I have many interesting stories to share but I am busy with alot of work.

This time it is very interesting one.  As it is the start of new year I am trying to be a “NEW ME”

Cool, Kind, Smooth, Arrogant and some of you might put it as cocky.

I am not sure if it`s only my weakness but it is dangerous and I am kinda scared.

So,  the thing is I suck at managing my emotions!

Now, that`s really a dangerous thing when you are in business.

Because you make your decisions and that affects your employees and clients as well.

How to react on a verbal attack?

You’ve just completed a project at work and you’re feeling pretty good about yourself. You think you’ve done a good job and you hope your boss will like it. (Of course, he’ll never let you know—he’s just not the kind of person to give compliments.) You’re at your desk taking care of some busy work, getting ready for the next project to come your way.

Suddenly, you hear your boss raise his voice and you wonder who’s getting chewed out this time. Then you hear him call your name as he stomps toward your desk. Your heart sinks: You know this is going to be bad.

Ships are safe in harbour, but that’s not what ships are made for.

The New Wave of Entrepreneurship

There is a multi-trillion dollar economy opening up to technology faster than ever. It has been driven by trends that have changed the nature of how entrepreneurs will be characterized going forward; specifically, industry executives will be the next wave of in-demand startup CEOs.

new wave of entrepreneurship

In April of 2007, Apple changed everything with the launch of the iPhone. It is hard to imagine that it has only been 8 years since the release of the first truly pervasive smartphone, but there is no denying its impact has been world-changing. Beyond the creation of a new dimension of industry-driven, by location-based, services (and with it, a myriad of billion dollar companies), an equally significant phenomenon emerged. By creating technology that was intuitive to the consumer masses, every person around the world started to embrace technology as more than just a work tool. Lawyers, doctors, car mechanics and people from every sector of the economy not only had a tool for productivity, but a piece of technology in their pocket they embraced as an intimate part of their lives.

20 shard lessons sam haider

20 Hard Lessons I learned before turning 20

  1. Life has already begun. There is no interlude. Nor is there a trial version. Your every decision matters.
  2. Your online friends are fake friends. Unfortunately, it’s true. Most of them do not care about you and will not come in your hour of need.
  3. If you fall in love, be ready to get your heart broken. It is tough and it hurts.
  4. Your studying career does not end after prom. Knowledge is crucial. If you are not willing to be left behind, keep studying.
  5. Your family members are the most important people in your life. They are the only ones who care about you. Treat them well and appreciate them.
  6. Your weaknesses do not matter. Learn to accept this. The only things that matter are your strengths. Improve them.
  7. Everything worth doing takes years. Do not expect to reach your goals too quickly. It will probably take much longer than you imagine.
  8. All the opportunities for growth are beyond your comfort zone. Make leaving it a habit. Find your discomfort zone. Enter it.
  9. Broken relationships are not worth staying in. Do not waste your time on things you cannot fix anymore. Let them go and move ahead.
  10. The world is full of injustice. There are plenty of unjust things you are likely to face within your lifetime. Be ready!
  11. Luck comes to those who work hard. Good things do not come to those who wait. Persistence and hard work are the only prerequisites for luck.
  12. There is no perfect moment to start. If you want to start doing something, act now. Do not wait for a better moment. It will never come.
  13. You cannot be everywhere and have everything. Learn to make the right choices and commit to the things that matter most.
  14. Every person in your life should be appreciated. Do not take people for granted.
  15. Experience and emotions are your best investments. The traditional measures of success — fancy cars and houses — are no longer relevant. Emotions, memories, experience, knowledge. These are the things that matter.
  16. Later often means never. Do not postpone anything. Live now!
  17. Success equals perseverance. Do not give up. Stay dedicated to your dreams. Chasing them is difficult, but it’s worth the struggle.
  18. Regular workouts are crucial. Take care of your health and body. Exercise regularly and make sure you are in a good shape.
  19. Your failures do not matter. Only wins count. Therefore, do not be afraid to fail.
  20. Nobody will help you. You have to help yourself.
