What boxing makes me…

Boxing has opened up a whole new world for me. Kat says “you can’t be grateful and angry at the same time”. And what Kat says has to be true because there is one rule at 12 Rounds Boxing. Your coach is always right (even if they are wrong). If you break the rule you have to do 20 burpees and I still have a love/hate relationship with those. So let’s go back to being grateful. I’m grateful that I’m open to learning new skills and that this journey has brought me to boxing. Boxing is hard work but even more important it’s fun and it’s a way to become the person I want to be. Someone who feels strong, confident and empowered.

Don’t worry this was just an exercise and no real life scenario. Nonetheless, it could have been real. This exercise taught us to develop empathy for the user. The only way to empathise with the users is to fully understand their situation. The goal is to discover hidden issues and things that are not obvious.
