Obvious to you, amazing to others.

A short exert from ‘Anything You Want’ by Derek Sivers. Obvious to you, amazing to others.

It’s 1:54 minutes of inspiration nudging us to share our ideas, opinions and creativity, no matter how obvious it might seem to us – it could be amazing to others.


I take a great deal from this. I regularly overthink an idea or something potentially creative to the point I gets buried.

I shouldn’t.

Obviously some ideas won’t float but what if one thing does?

What if one idea shared helps some one or some thing some where?

Surely it’s better to put it out there? Surely to not, is selfish?

Happy New Year.
