What do the really successful designers do that most people don’t?
It really just comes down to who can handle the boredom of study or drawing practice every day.
and doing the same drawings over and over and over again. While hand drawing practice is no longer necessary, taking practice tests and researching codes and references has taken its place. Learn to fall in love with repetition and routine.
It’s this ability to do the work when it’s not easy that separates the top performers from everyone else. It's really not the single event of passing the NCIDQ Exam, it's the process of showing up every day and doing the work.
Ultimately the responsibility lies with each designer to assess their work experience and exposure to the different tasks and activities associated with the various phases of design. Then actively seek out practice experience in the areas in which they'll be tested, so they can connect what they study with what they do on the job.
That’s also the difference between professionals and amateurs.
To pass the NCIDQ, fall in love with the process, not just the end result.
