Success George Takei

This simple napkin sketch, which has been making the rounds on Facebook, is originally credited to Star Trek actor George Takei’s feed, although it is unclear if he came up with the idea or posted it from elsewhere.

It doesn’t matter: The idea still resonates.

From an outsider’s perspective, it seems like people at the top of their industries just naturally gravitated there based on talent and smarts.  Of course, any engineer, architect, or CAD manager who’s ever helped usher a product from the idea stage to reality knows better.

If you’re a Star Trek fan, you know that George Takei, a.k.a. Mr. Sulu, overcame all sorts of challenges battling ethnic stereotypes off screen — and on screen, there were tons of dicey moments with aliens.

Tell us about your experience living inside those squiggly lines. What’s been your biggest CAD challenge that you’ve overcome — whether it’s been with DraftSight or not?

…And any lessons you can share with the rest of us?
