Kent State UXD Program- UXD in Practice Reflective Journaling Week 7
I had the opportunity to listen/read to the first part of the book called Nonsense:The Power of Not Knowing by Jamie Holmes.
It is a fascinating voyage into the power of letting yourself not know and the impact of doing this.
This is interesting to me because I believe designers are great at doing this more than anyone else. Designers can hold a thought an idea in their mind and not make a decision right away what they want to do with it. Most people have a sense of urgency to make a decision and find themselves that they are not creative. They are creative but they not have the patience for taking a chance of
not knowing something. The book discusses the impact of not knowing and most often our emotions are amplified, sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse. I am still reading it but I would recommend anyone who is interested in this unique skill, of not knowing (or not always having the answer) and still thriving and being successful in your career.
