I draw alot of inspiration from my parents and forefathers, most of all their work-ethics. I never had that “get it done”-spirit which came natural to them, given the whole “do it or die”-situation being farmers in harsh conditions.
Growing up knowing very little else beside mountains and farming, my father became a very well respected pilot, my uncles became an engineer and a doctor. Its a dreamy kind of determination, with a very grounded kind of grunt baked into it. The sky is the limit, but you have to build the big-ass ladder.
For a few years now I have followed Jaimie Mantzel. An off-grid youtuber, most famous for building a HUGE spider robot in the woods of vermont. Now hes sold everything he owned in america and bought a small island in Panama. If you are not impressed, neigh, INSPIRED by watching him build a concrete castle out of the whole island… I dont know what it takes. Jaimie has the same kind of gruntwork-attitude i grew up with, as well as an analytical side to him i very much identify with.
to sum it up; Do your best. Always.
