There's always a different perspective; indulge in this practice of creativity by exploring everything that surrounds you.
Being a UX designer, you must have an eye to look at usual things in an unusual way.
Just look at the app, interface, or even a computer you are using right now. Can you feel that there are a few things that need to improve?
If yes, then you have the ability to see at things in the same way as a UX designer looks around him.
Before taking a step into UX career you may not be able to look at things differently from others, but as you start working on UX, you develop a habit of looking at things that you use every day with a different eye.
A UX designer should be able to quickly judge what needs to change from the user’s perspective.
You are sitting on a chair with a table in front of you, you can easily judge their usability. You are using a mug for a coffee, you can analyze the experience it provides to you.
This is the observation skill that a UX designer must have and it helps him to look and observe things around him, thus improving them and making them easier to use.
How observation skill helps you in UX designing?
With this skill, you can find the difference between good and bad design, understand the user's behavior and need, focus on details, make things better in function and appearance, find various solutions to one problem, etc...
From now on, try to look at everything with unusual eyes, and you'll see how it affects your life and work day by day.
