In order to get better at our pursuits in our lives, we need to know what our current strengths and weaknesses are so that we can embrace the things that work and change the ones that are holding us back. What does it look like when two close friends criticize each other and point out one another’s strengths and weaknesses? How can this help designers grow?

Mike starts this episode off by identifying his weakness of having too many ideas and not being able to distill it into simple and short explanations. Tim talks about his issue with wanting to control the outcome and appearance of his personal pursuits so much that he spends a lot of time learning other things like how to code instead of finding help.

They switch the discussion where Mike talks about his strength of staying level headed and neutral during stressful times as well as being organized and planning ahead. Tim talks about his strength of not being afraid to pursue his ideas and having a curious mind.
