I've been in a bit of a creative funk lately. I have some ideas on projects I want to work on, including a new book, but I have had to rethink things. The long and the short of it, is I need to be sure what I create is aligned with where I want to be longterm. Things are still fuzzy, the funk is still here. Maybe something is holding you back too. Rather than dwell on this today, I wanted to share this inspiring short film. This might be just the kick you need to stop waiting.
Watch as Brad O’Neill looks to take his childhood dream and turn it into a reality by jumping a bike high enough to be able to base jump from it. O'Neill asks a few thought-provoking questions and shares some profound statements. It raises the question, what was your childhood dream?
"Why keep waiting? The perfect time is now."
"Usually, the things you are most apprehensive about are the ones that will bring you the most joy."
"There is a serious struggle balancing what your mind is telling you and what your heart is telling you."
"How long your life is isn't what's important. It's about how you spend your time."
Hat tip to Chris Guillebeau for sharing this on his blog today.
