You Have to Have Your Life Together By 30

A short and rough riff on beliefs, and how beliefs affect us. Here goes:

Because you believe that getting a certain job will bump up your status role, you’ll do what you can to get it.

Because you believe that completing certain milestones by a certain age bracket will make you more successful, you’ll do what you can to achieve them.

And if belief that a certain diet or exercise routine will make you a better, healthier person, you’ll do that too.

It doesn’t matter if there are different headache-relieving medications out there. If it’s not Tylenol I might not trust it.

Although invisible and holding no physical weight, personal belief holds all our power.

As a designer, my goal isn’t to create new beliefs, but to put together products and services that already align with existing ones.
