10 New Year's Resolutions for Designers

Well, there is no way to put this other than to say that all of these are on my list. Particularly, stop trying to save bad work. Once I read this I realized that I do this. I do this quite often. Honestly, I didn't even realize I did this until I read it in this article. And it is true, the urge to try and save something that you know may have no hope is brought on by the fact I don't want to feel like I've wasted my time. As discussed in class, having good saving new compositions in the middle of your work is a habit we should all start doing. Having one composition and working on it for hours at a time without tracking all the very different and very many things you have been trying is a problem. I'll make a larger effort to address this issue as I'm working, but when I get in the groove of things I tend to forget what's going on around me. Which leaves me to there a short key for this (saving a new comp, rather than saving over your last command + s)? Is there an app for this?...
