I’m a website designer, and I’ve been doing it for over 25 years. In that time, I’ve learned some important lessons about success—and failure. Here are 10 habits of insanely successful website designers:
1. They Write And Read Code Every Day
If you want to be an insanely successful website designer, you need to write code every day. This doesn’t mean that you’re going to become a coder yourself and do the same thing every day; it means that you’ll read code every day—and even more importantly, think about how someone could write code for something new or different than what they’re working on now.
The reason this is important is that if you can look at your site design process through fresh eyes each time it changes (even if only slightly), then those changes will always feel like improvements instead of just adding new features to an existing framework. It also gives your team members something new and exciting to work on while they’re still learning the ropes themselves!
2. They Learn Something New Every Day
Learning something new every day is an important part of your development as a professional. It helps you stay on top of industry trends, keeps things fresh, and helps you grow as a designer. Whether it’s learning about new design techniques or reading articles about the latest trends in web design, there are always ways to expand your knowledge base.
For example, if you want to learn how to build apps for mobile devices then check out [this article](https://www.webdesignerdepot.com/how-to-build-a-mobile-app). You can also find lots more info at [the W3C](https://www.w3c.org/). The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is an international community that develops open standards for Web technologies so everyone works together in harmony towards common goals like better interoperability between browsers, faster load times, and more secure websites overall!
3. They Spend Time With Their Families
It’s no secret that the best way to stay healthy is by getting enough sleep, eating well, and exercising regularly. However, what many people don’t realize is that spending time with your family can actually improve your health in other ways as well! In fact, a recent study showed that people who spend more time with their loved ones have lower rates of depression than those who don’t—even after controlling for income level or socioeconomic status (SES). So if you want to feel happy at home or on vacation this summer—and especially if you want it now—make sure you’re doing something fun together like watching movies together or playing board games!
4. They Answer Emails Late At Night
I’m sure you’ve been in this situation before: You have an important email to send, but the person who you’re sending it is on another continent or in a different time zone. You need your message to get across as soon as possible.
But what do you do if they’re asleep?
You can wait until morning, which might be too late for them (and possibly too early for you). Or maybe they’ll pick up their phone after everyone else does and answer your email when everyone else has gone home from work (in which case all of us would probably be asleep). And even if they do answer your email early enough so that both of you are awake at night and available at the same time, chances are high that whoever responds first will get the short end of the stick with any follow-up questions or clarifications needed by both parties involved in order for everything related back-and-forth communication process not just between yourselves but also among yourselves since there could be multiple people involved here too!
5. They Have A Workout Routine
Exercise is a must. It’s the foundation of many successful people, and it can be done in your own time with no need for equipment or gym membership.
The best way to start exercising is by creating a workout routine that you enjoy so that you’ll stick with it over time. If you’re looking for inspiration, consider what kind of exercise brings out your best side: tennis. Guitar? Running?
What about yoga? There are plenty of options out there when it comes to finding something new or interesting with which to work out each day—and if none of these seem enticing enough yet then maybe try taking up badminton instead!
6. They Take Care Of Their Mental Health
When you’re working on a project and feeling stressed, it’s easy for your mind to wander off and start thinking about the next thing you have to do. But how can you avoid this from happening? One way is by taking breaks every now and again—whether that means going for a walk or taking a bath (or even just putting on some music). When we’re feeling overwhelmed, it helps us clear our minds so we can focus again on what needs doing next. And since most designers are designers by trade, they’ve probably already got a routine when it comes time for lunch or dinner breaks: maybe they’ll grab something at their local cafe with one of their coworkers; maybe they’ll go home after work instead of heading out somewhere else like bars or clubs where everyone might be having fun but not necessarily working hard enough yet (“I’m gonna get lunch”). Whatever works best! Just make sure whatever works doesn’t involve alcohol because then things could get out of control quickly if anyone else happens along while those responsible aren’t paying attention.
7. They Don’t Eat Junk Food
Seven. They don’t eat junk food.
The majority of the healthiest dieters out there are those who eat healthy foods and avoid fast-food chains, which are often loaded with trans fats and other harmful additives. They also don’t overdo it with sugar or salt (which can lead to heart disease).
8. They Go To Bed Early And Get Up Early
You may think that it’s all about the work, but in reality, your success is dependent on how much sleep you get. The body needs at least 7 hours of sleep each night to function optimally and repair itself from the inside out. Not getting enough sleep can lead to poor judgment, moodiness, and even depression. If you’re not sleeping well or regularly falling behind on your bedtime schedule (I know some people who set their alarm clocks an hour early), take a look at what’s keeping you awake: Is there something else going on in your life that could be causing stress? Do some deep breathing exercises before bedtime! It will help calm down any agitation or anxiety so that when it comes time for sleep again later in the evening—and hopefully another full night of restful slumber—you’ll feel relaxed enough to drift off easily without much effort required from yourself (or maybe even better yet.
9. They Speak Out A Lot About Their Jobs
Complaining about your job is a great way to vent frustration, get feedback from others and learn more about the problems you’re facing. It also helps you understand how to handle those problems better in the future.
But complaining too much can actually make you more frustrated. It’s easy to get stuck in a cycle where you complain about problems but don’t do anything to fix them.
10. They Keep Their Desks Clean And Organized
Keeping your desk clean and organized is a great way to reduce stress. It’s easier to stay focused when you have a clutter-free workspace.
It can also help you get things done faster because no one wants to spend time cleaning up after themselves!
Successful website designers are more like the rest of us than you think
You may think that successful website designers are super-human, but the truth is they’re just like us. They have normal jobs, they don’t have special powers and they don’t live in a world where everything works perfectly every single time.
In fact, if you asked any of these insanely successful website designers what their most important tool was for being successful at what they do then they would probably say “the internet.” So why does it seem like there is so many individuals out there who think this way? Well, one reason might be that we get our information from sources that aren’t always reliable or trustworthy (like your newsfeed). But another reason could be because we haven’t met anyone yet who has told us about their experience with building a website design business from scratch!
I hope this article has inspired you to follow in the footsteps of these successful designers, and that it has given you some tips on how to do so yourself. Remember that all of these things are within your reach—and if one person can do them, then anyone can!
