Inspiring Today: Have You Change The World Lately?
What Have You Created?
Yes, I know you’re a master of lighting, that you’ve used every light modifier known, that you’ve been going to PhotoPlus for ten years, that you were one of the first bloggers, you used Twitter before it was cool and you can gauge light temperature in your sleep. Yes, I know that you sit in front of your computer reminding other photographers that they’re using the wrong gear for this job or that job.
But what have you made? Where are your pictures hanging? Where are your campaigns? Your commercials? What about your new book or your portfolio? What have you done with your skills that has been worthy of criticism, that moved the dial and that changed the world?
Go, do that.
What have you shipped?
Yes, I know you’re a master of the web, that you’ve visited every website written in English, that you’ve been going to SXSW for ten years, that you were one of the first bloggers, you used Foursquare before it was cool and you can code in HTML in your sleep. Yes, I know that you sit in the back of the room tweeting clever ripostes when speakers are up front failing on a panel and that you had a LOLcat published before they stopped being funny.
But what have you shipped?
What have you done with your connection skills that has been worthy of criticism, that moved the dial and that changed the world?
Go, do that.
Found this very interesting article from one of our favorite photographer, Chase Jarvis whose works have inspire a lot of us. In his latest blog post, Jarvis re-quote Seth Godin, an amazing marketing guru, also one of his favorites. And we’re more than glad to share his recent ponder which really provokes our insight and knock some (common) sense into our brain. This sort of atrociously honest question is what keeps us on our toes. Reminds us to keep on creating, writing, innovating ourselves the way we know best.
Hopes this keeps our mind afresh.
