My dad used to speak of seasons of life quite often as I was growing up. He used them as an anchor point for providing reference to a specific situation. Often the seasons of life were tied to the moment and what was happening with kids, relationships, school, career, etc.

For whatever reason, I found it comforting even in times of uncertainty where the results were unknown or cloudy at best. I think what I liked about this approach was the idea that whatever is happening will not last forever. Be it a hard situation or even a prosperous one. Be encouraged; this too will pass, or be prepared and ready for what is to come.

In thinking of different seasons this week and current events, my mind drifted toward my yearly goals and observing how the seasons of my day and week aid in keeping my aims for 2020. I broke it down this way.

  1. A Season of Learning: The segments of my day and week devoted to learning something new
  2. A Season of Teaching: A weekly time to reach out to others to share and instruct.
  3. A Season of Reflecting: I’ve set a goal to write one post a week this year. To reflect on what I’ve learned, worked on, or failed at miserably.
  4. A Season of Action: Task-oriented. Tickets were knocked out. New DesignesCreated. Edits to Existing Designs.

Looking at my schedule this way gives me a process to plan out my week. It gives me a sense of satisfaction come Friday evening. It reminds me that time moves quickly and seasons of life change.

For the past 18 years, Brian has been designing and creating legal blogs with LexBlog. If a legal blog has the LexBlog logo, chances are this design came from Brian.

During his time with LexBlog, Brian has served as lead designer and the art director for LexBlog. In addition, he works directly with the product team to provide design and UX/UI guidance for the tools that power the world’s largest legal network.

Brian lives for design, but he only does so because of the kindness of the noble manatee. Misplaced by his family during a road trip in Florida in 1987, Brian was kept safe by a herd of sea cows for 11 days.

The experience changed him, giving him an appreciation for the beauty found in the natural world and the life-sustaining quality of water-logged leafy greens.

When not in front of his computer, Brian can be found floating gently down the various waterways of Ohio, solving crimes and righting wrongs.
