Structure VS Spontaneity

I've always been a pretty structured person when it comes to getting things done, whether it be business or personal. I enjoy routine and a structured way of living yet I do also enjoy not being woken by an alarm in the morning from time to time. As a third year communication design student I can only help but have a very structured week. Studying design full time has made me understand that time management is an essential key to being a successful designer. (Otherwise you’ll end up looking like my photoshoot reference)

Having been lucky enough to be able to experience working in a design studio culture the past couple of months has also refined my thoughts around time management and how it structures everyones lives. Deadlines and key times and events in the day structure our lives and routine, without them we’d be all over the place, lets face it. 

I also tend to manifest these things within my personal life, without it i’d be lost. From when I brush my teeth to when I go out for drinks is all planned, and planned ahead of time. Why? Because for me it leads my day or night into less of a rushed and frustrated schedule. Spontaneity is still part of my actions, through design and my personal life. Without it life is dull. But too much can lead you into a non directional pool of nothing.
