In Chapter 1 of 21 in his 2012 Capture Your Flag interview, design educator Jon Kolko answers "What is Getting Easier and What is Getting Harder in Your Life?" Kolko shares how mentors have taught him to pick his battles and not fight every fight. By being more selective on what he takes on, he lowers his stress levels. He still wrestles with an inner dialogue of the quantity, validity and craftsmanship of the work he does. Jon Kolko is the founder and director of the Austin Center for Design.
