This month I decided to watch the video interviews on CreativeLive by Chase Jarvis and get some daily inspiration, motivation and wisdom. I’ve decided to blog about the series, logging my thoughts and takeaways…
Day 29 creative genius – Caterina Fake.
As the founder of Flickr amongst many other notable achievements, Caterina Fake can be said to be an important figure today. As mentioned, she’s on Time’s list of the 100 most influential people. Wow, that says something, right?
It was amazing to hear about her humble beginnings and the variety of jobs she has held. It’s not like she knew what she wanted to do since the beginning. It really was a journey of following her instincts and ultimately, just keeping at it.
I really felt like it’s a real story of someone just hustling and doing their thing… and happened upon something great and kept at it. In listening to all these CreativeLive interviews, I’m realizing that everyone’s story is different, but there are common threads. Working hard, failing a lot, keeping at it and just doing it anyone to find that right path… ultimately results in something… perhaps something great even.
I suppose the key to everything is taking action? Even if it’s bit by bit! Caterina mentions a video by Ze Frank – your life in jellybeans and that really touched me for sure.
