Forward looking

I gravitate towards industrial design because I like to resolve ambiguous problems that don't have right or wrong answers. I am not quite sure how many other professionals share this directionless method of problem solving, but I sure get joy from deriving conclusions on my sheer gut reaction. "Should this surface be convex or concave?" Who knows-but I usually have a feeling that it should go one way or another.

The only drawback is that I can make myself quite comfortable in this unconstrained void. At times I think, "Why resolve anything when brainstorming is so much fun?"

The problem here is the very lack of direction I claim to enjoy. It is free to dream, but reality requires much work and concentration.
