Hello, I’m Matt Hood, I am a professional designer and strategist who for the majority of my life struggled with defining my design and life's direction. I tripped and failed time and time again in my work and professional life and for the longest time couldn’t seem to get my mind together, or anything else within my life for that matter.
My mind and my life debilitated to a state of thinking and living by default not design, just going through the motions, and living on autopilot. Eventually this lack a purpose, direction and design in my life led to everything finally falling apart.
My Low Point
I hit a tremendous low point in my life; I lost my job, I lost my partner, lost all of my money and I had to move back home. I also began drinking more and more and dug myself deeper into self-destructive patterns, that only got worse. I felt horrible and thought this was how the entirety of my life was going to end up. It wasn’t until one night I was looking at a design project I was drudging through, and the answer to my problems hit me, what if I treat myself, my mind, and my life like a design project.
Then it all changed
After implementing these processes and procedures I created into my life, I virtually removed all of my negative thinking and thought patterns, I feel at home being 100% true and authentic to myself and to the outside world, my mind, thinking, my confidence and belief in myself are as solid as a brick, and my personal creativity is sharper than ever.
After working through this process and uncovering my true self and personal power through design, I now own my own business, speak at conferences, and travel as much as possible, exploring life and all it has to offer. And I have not been happier.
