As cynical as it sounds, I rarely find anything inspiring on the Internet nowadays. There is plenty of great content out there but in my life experiences, the truly moving and inspiring creations require either a big screen and buttery popcorn, a lot of black and orange, or in-person conversation that cannot be felt through and email or a phone call. Maybe it’s an old school way of thinking or maybe I am just tired of the repetitive nature that has become the way most of us use the web on a daily basis. Regardless, I still search to find those things that inspire the next stirring of my soul, the very nature of my entrepreneurial existence.
I’ve often thought of myself as an outlaw of sorts (not just because I’m a huge Tupac fan either), in the sense that I don’t see myself having one job all my life, a career in the same field for years, or even living in the same place for an extended time period (at least until I land in SF), which is kind of Rebel Without A Cause-like in a way. With my current city being the incredible New York City, watching the infinite uniqueness of human nature and our inherent behavior to bury our individualities under the expectations of others, I am digging deeper within myself every day, learning exactly what it is that I want in life. All of the moving, the networking and connecting serves me many purposes, and of course, as the confirmation of the assumptions that everyone who follows me on Twitter or Facebook has already determined about me based on their own projections and belief systems. The new faces, places, business ventures, and all of my experiences along the way will shape my creations and passions for the coming years.
With that said, there are some things that will always inspire me. One of those things is curves. The curves of a woman, the curves of the California coastline, the curves of a Porsche and the curves that aren’t physical in nature, the ones that direct you or guide you to your next experience in life. The video below is called Urban Outlaw. I discovered it today while browsing the web. It features all of those curves that I love, minus the woman. The idea to create, to reshape, to rebuild and to beautify, is everything that is entrepreneurial to me and everything that I am about. To take something perfect, add some more passion and have the results be even better and more improved. Perhaps not in the physical sense, but in the sense of the euphoric experience that comes from doing what you love when nobody really understands what it is, the nature of an outlaw, the passion, perfect.
