I’m a fan of Derek Sivers. Go to Youtube and look up Obvious to you. Amazing to others. He is a genius. You will find a short, to-the-point animated video of an idea. A great idea.

You don’t know how your writing on Medium and elsewhere will affect your reader. Stay encouraged and keep writing. Keep creating.

“Everybody's ideas seem obvious to them. I bet even John Coltrane or Richard Feynman felt that everything they were playing or saying was pretty obvious. So maybe what’s obvious to me is amazing to someone else.”

I need outside inspiration all the time.

I need inspiration from reading or listening to someone every day. When I come across an authentic message from someone, I’m lifted. When I come across an informative read somewhere, I’m thankful that the author took the time to share. When I discover a new truth, I’m excited. Also, when I can pick up my phone and google anything from the distance from Cleveland, Ohio to Manhattan, NY, or how to grill a steak. I’m grateful. Even when someone takes the time to write an insightful review on Amazon, it helps.

To become a member of the Medium community and contribute either in reading or writing is lovely.
