Today I woke three hours before I have to be at work and spent it drinking a delicious cup of fresh ground coffee and watching a keynote from Chase Jarvis and a lot of other fantastic photographers, their discussion of inspiration, how they got started, and what it doesn't take to be amazing is a great way of looking at life and work. A lot of my time in the last few years has been devoted to learning and creating, I want nothing more than to be surrounded by people who want to constantly grow and people like Chase Jarvis set such a great example.

Below is the keynote address itself given by Chase Jarvis during PDNPhoto Plus Expo 2010, if you have the time I highly suggest watching it as even if you are not a photographer the things they discuss can be applied to many areas of life. There are so many people and things in life that inspire me to work and be who I want to be and I want to start sharing some of them here.
