If you do what you always did, you will get what you always got.

If you use the same tool to design, write, plan, code, whatever it is that you do, try changing it.

The tools you use can often dictate the work you.

Mix it up, try Sketch instead of Photoshop, try Asana instead of Basecamp, try code instead of Axure, try Brackets instead of Sublime Text, try a laptop screen instead of a huge monitor.

Yes it will be a challenge, it won’t be as easy as your usual tool, but that’s the point. Learning a new tool will help shape what you build with that tool. It will break patterns of behaviour and allow you to question better the work that you do.

Try it.
