When it comes to design, visual weight is distributed either vertically or horizontally to achieve balance. Imagine if your design were a three-dimensional object — if you have distributed its weight properly then it can manage to stand on its own. Designers are trained to use elements such as line, texture, color, and form in their creations to render stability. Symmetry creates order.
As I grow older I constantly find myself overwhelmed with my own life. I find myself sprinting through the day in order to avoid disappointment, but the constant interruptions of new requests are creating a loud buzzing inside my head. I need to adjust my focus.

Today I will make my list of priorities to put change into action.
