Rejection often gets us into problem-solving mode. But what if what’s needed at that critical moment is a warm blanket than a heavy, steely hammer?

After six (6) months of inactivity, I decided to relaunch this UX/life blog, Hey Design Thinker. Today I reflect on my professional journey, the choices I have made, and the critical juncture I’m facing as I hit the fifth year of my user experience practice – whether I’m meant to be a tactical designer or a strategy-focused UX specialist.
