  • Sketch : A lightweight vector editing tool that is intuitive and affordable. I find it a handy tool to create simple illustrations.
  • A lightweight Prototyping tool that generates interactive animation. It works with sketch Seamlessly.

The overscheduled mind

We are often overscheduled and obsessed with efficiency. A plethora of opportunities awaits and we are eager to seize them all, as though we fear if we allow ourselves to squander a few minutes, the world is at risk of changing without us.
