“Your focus determines your reality.” -George Lucas
Loneliness does not come from having no people around you, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to you.

You’ll never have the patience and the persistence to put up with all of the boring parts that go into mastery, the repetition and the learning rules and procedures, following orders, being someone very low down on the totem pole in the beginning if you don’t love what you’re doing.

Grit is the disposition to pursue very long-term goals with passion and perseverance. And I want to emphasize the stamina quality of grit. Grit is sticking with things over the long term and then working very hard at it.

Grit is living life like it’s a marathon, not a sprint.

Grit and the Secret of Success – fascinating look at the work of pioneering psychologist Angela Duckworth, who studies the one personality trait more predictive of success than any other. (via explore-blog)

Name is Ena Bacanovic, but Ruby for everyone. 22 years old, currently living and working in Zagreb / Croatia. My first encounter with graphic design was back in the days of elementary school, in art class, and since then, design is something that I do every day. I love making simple and clean things that have complicated stories behind them, with a dose of humor, if possible. When I’m not on the computer working on a new projects or sleeping, I play drums in a female band Punčke and run The Design Blog.
