A Mountain and a Board
This guy learned, built, and refined his interest to become an almost-three-decades-long career. The result is a sport called mountainboarding, or, as the Great Big Story people titled it, Snowboarding Without the Snow.
Those of you who want to spend their lives doing what they love, take note. One way to make it happen is to find a new way to connect things and keep pushing yourself to explore how it can be made better and better.
Is there something that you enjoy that you could do in a rather different way? That is, can you bring a creative insight that allows something totally new to emerge?
Don’t worry if you can’t think of anything now. The more important lesson is that you should be ready for a cool idea, and when one happens, write it down and then try building on that idea.
So, what might you have learned, built, and refined by a year from now? Whatever it is, there’s the possibility that it can become a path for a very cool future.
