Among the people who have a birthday on July 29 is Tim Gunn, the American clothing designer, educator and fashion consultant who came to national attention through the television show, Project Runway.
Project Runway is one of my favorite television shows. It might be the seamstress in me who can easily follow a pattern but who would fail miserably if I had to design something on my own. It might be my love of fabrics and threads. It might be the interesting personalities that are showcased among the designers. It might be the fabric buying trips to Mood. Or maybe it is Tim Gunn who I think is a classy and sophisticated yet real person.
Like me, Tim Gunn is an introvert. His quote which depicts the importance of surrounding ourselves with the right people refutes a common misconception about introverts. It is not that introverts shun all people. Introverts need good relationships with others, perhaps only a select few but we still need those relationships.
Tim Gunn’s famous line to all his designers is “Make It Work.”
That is something we all need to do as we face challenges in life. We must “make it work.”
