March 13th: Weekly Design Links

“There is a difference between listening and waiting for your turn to speak.” — Simon Sinek

1,629 Links since the beginning of this post series. That’s a lot of links–but what’s more amazing is the amount of creative energy, effort, imagination and pure work that this represents. None of this happens without the decision to make and rarely (almost never) does it happen on the first go. There are dozens, hundreds and thousands of failed attempts that go unseen. That is the real work that most people never share on social media. The painful process of getting to that amazing moment goes unseen. To the makers, this is not news–but just a reminder.
