Hi everyone, here is my passion video. Was a tough choice but wanted to just get one online. Chose fitness, but could have equally been cooking, discussing ideas, personal development or music.

Surfing – my passion video. –

Hey Ian, great passion and I really feel you! My number one sport is snowboarding, but surfing is definitely up there too. I’ve been doing it for 4 years.
Where abouts in Japan do you live? How’s the surf there? What would you compare it to in the world?
Btw, Japan is more than amazing for snowboarding too, you should try that if you haven’t yet 🙂

Hi Ian – surfing certainly sounds cool (I’ve only done it once on a beginner’s course in Biarritz France and enjoyed it). If you didn’t have to worry about time, money, resources or anything else would you surf all the time if so, where? Did you turn surfing into your career or vocation – or are you planning on doing this?

Hi this took a few attempts and is a bit fluffy but hey just went with it here’s My Passion Video

Sounds like the recipe for a pretty healthy rounded life to me, good stuff.

Hi, this is the first time i have recorded myself, very embarrassing experience and i need more sleep (the joys of having a young family)!

Good points, in a similar position myself. I think real fulfillment in life does come from finding your passion and gift and going after it. Certainly is tough to decide on it and go after though.

Hi Adam. Nice video, well articulated. I found your comment on the difference between loving what you do and having a passion interesting (and made me think). In the past 2-3 years have been struggling with that. It’s one thing to be professional, do excellent work each day (we are what we repeatedly do as Aristotle once said), but I have also found that if you continue on a professional path, it starts to feel empty without a larger purpose (been a management consultant for 12-13 years). Just sharing my own experience.

Thanks Adam – your video really pushed me to get my own video up!

Great video Adam like the walking and talking keeps it real 👍

Here is my first video for Create & Connect, Week 1 – I joined the London Real Academy because I believe Virtual Reality is going to change the world. As a full time 3D artist, I intend to do everything I can to be a part of that. Also – for some reason I can’t get the video embed code to work so here is a link instead. My apologies for the jump to YouTube.

Great video. What are you most excited about virtual reality allowing us to do that will change the world for the better? Similarly, what do you think some of the risks are (I share some of the trepidations about people becoming even more disconnected)?

Member

Most well polished video in the world. Love the way you know what your passion is. Not only that you LOVE VR but also that you have a Mission. Cool passion. Very envious

Member

Hi Charlene, I’m the kind of people who is afraid of virtual reality. Maybe it is more about ignorance. I think our society is already virtual, and people are too disconnect from each other. I would prefer re-create real and honest communication and physical contact rather than virtual reality. But my eyes are not yours and I’ m curious to see more. Nice to have you here.

Member
Hi Pierre, It is nice to meet you. I love that you were honest in sharing your fear of virtual reality. Thank you for doing that. I appreciate the honesty and respectfulness. I am so passionate about this that I am concerned my reply in text format would be so long and full of too many words. I want to reply to you in kind but I want to do it justice. I will make a new video for you and also for my good friends here that feel the same way. I understand completely. I’ll post tomorrow! I’m looking… Read more »

Hi Charlene, cool video! I’m one of the community managers here, we just fixed your video so it will now appear here too, hope that’s ok. The links seem to need to be on their own separate line for them show up on this thread. Thanks!

Member

Thank you, Nick! I really appreciate that. I was embarrassed I couldn’t make it work that way. Glad it is now. I will remember the separate line trick.

Member

Hi there! My name is Charlene and I am a 3d artist. I am working through week 1 of Create & Connect and am looking forward to meeting others in this group.

Member

Hi everyone, I’m new here, and I’m enjoy to join this tribe. I’ve just posted my presentation video to the facebook group. First, I wish you the best and I hope to find out more about me in this place. Here is the first video about passion.

Admin

Thanks for the video Pierre! I have had some bad experiences with Skiing but maybe you could convince me…

Member

Thanks for your reply, Nick. If you are a beginner, do not hesitate to take lesson. I’m sure you’ll take pleasure.

Hi Samania, it’s great to developp a business according to your passion ! I’m impressed. And you seem to have a good state of mind, very positive and grateful.
But, can you present your activity or, if it is visual, can you show us what it is ? Thanks

I am passionate about People, making People happy and healthy. I love teaching drama (for educational purposes and for fun!) to both children and adults. I would love to teach more adults (teachers and other personell working with people) I love my hometown and the arctic nature so here it is.

Admin

Thanks Torbjørn, your artic life sounds fascinating, and I especially like the way you ended the video!

Member

I was an educator for 15 years…it definitely takes passion to educate others. Looks a bit chilly up there, I’m sure that requires passion to endure the winters. What makes you feel passionate about the arctic? Weather? The activities? The beauty?

Many thanks for the feedback Sara ! Your nice question inspired me to write this : Firstly I just love The people and the community feeling I get from the way we live together with each other up here! Enjoying the various possiblities the diverse weather changes provides, How we use The changes in seasons to have funHow and join togheter in celebrations, Snowmobiles, skiing,, fishing, hunting, etc. I love how people change with the different seasonal temperature changes. I apperciate the gigantic contrasts during the year from the beuty of the midnight sun to the dark frozen snowy-blizzard- hell… Read more »

Wouah ! That’s sound great ! I could imagine the life is no easy, but offer a lot of happiness. Here in Paris, I feel a little bit disconnected to nature, and its rythm. I miss it.
Inside this passion, do you imagine be a guide, a nature guide ou adventure guide in your artic ?

Member

Hey All,

My discover week, you know when don’t realise how much you miss something till you do it again. This is what I have found recently. Let me know what you think.

Member

Hi Ady, it’s courageous to start again ! I did that 8 years ago about Taekwondo and my mind and body were not in the same planet 🙂 I thought I could do a high kick, but my body said no ! 2 years ago, I stopped. I moved too far from the club. But last year, I began bodyweight fitness on my own. Each workout is a challenge, to find motivation and not to be disturb by my environnement. But keeping his body fit is essential. You do well ! Keep going.

Member

Ady…Gosh, I can relate to the “pain and pleasure” of getting back in shape. The first month is the most critical in establishing the habit, even if it hurts 🙂

Hey guys,
Discover-Week for me and here is my create-post!. Talking about my passion(s) took my a little bit more than 60seconds … sorry 😉 Looking forward to read your thoughts. Please be honest and outright. Thanks, Martin

Member

Hi Martin, nice passion to quit his job 🙂
The project about the coffe machine is very interesting. Sometimes, I’m thinking or dreaming of buying an old factory and trying to revive an ancient craft. Maybe one day !
So keep going and go as far as you can.
I’ve got a question : how do you manage these three activities ? Your actual job, the coffee project and the last one.
By the way, can you describe this technology ? I don’t what is about. Thanks?

Member

That sounds like a great project to get stuck into. Coffee machines are big business and of the time at the moment as is retro and as you have the brand that’s even better. There is also an appetite for German made, I’m sure there are plenty of challenges to deal with but that’s what makes it valuable right? Be interested to watch this as it evolves.

Martin Gimnich
Member

Hey Ady,
thanks for your words – I´ll keep the you and the Realers in the loop! First big pitch is in January, so keep your fingers crossed! 🙂
Yours, Martin

Hi Martin, what kind of coffee machine you’re talking? I’m really interested in coffee. In Milan a friend once showed me a strange old coffee machine with a wooden bar to press (?) the coffee. Is it something wooden-made-old-style? Many people would buy it just to show it in their house!.

In all honesty, I wasn’t going to do a video … But then I got hacked.

Member

Wow, that’s blown me away, I use various hosting services and it never occurred to me what the potential value was to someone else. Coming more from the engineering side I’d have thought the greatest risk in 3rd party hosting is securing the servers you are running not access to the console. Thanks for the video, that’s changed my outlook completely. I hope it works out and you get your money back.
