This is a great video. I don’t know about you, but amid all the work and distractions, I need a reminder every once in a while about what is truly important. This short video is nice a little proverbial smack upside the head that does just that.

Look Up – A spoken word film for an online generation.

‘Look Up’ is a lesson taught to us through a love story, in a world where we continue to find ways to make it easier for us to connect with one another, but always results in us spending more time alone.

Written, Performed & Directed by Gary Turk.

Uncommon Sense – Advice for entrepreneurs from Derek Sivers.

Lessons learned from starting, building, and selling CD Baby. A 47-minute talk in 8 parts of about 6 minutes a piece or so.

The thing I like about Derek is that he’s such a nice guy who clearly wants to help people (I’ve never met him in person but being reader of his blog and follower of him online, it’s obvious). And when he sold CD Baby — for a hefty sum — he donated the proceeds. (Not that there would have been anything wrong with keeping what he rightfully earned.) In this short video series, he shares some nice nuggets from his journey. I enjoyed it. Perhaps you will too.
