I few nights ago I was struggling to sleep and kept tossing and turning in bed. Instead of forcing myself to close my eyes and sleep, I decided to lie there and think. A lot has been going on in my life lately, I've had lots of free time and little to no work. If you know me, you may know that this drives me absolutely insane; day after day I think the same thoughts and do similar tasks. In an effort to stop all this, I've been doing my best to give myself things to do but it never feels like enough. My mind has been in a real cloud lately and that restless night really pulled me back to where I need to be. I thought about my relationships, my family, my gear, my goals, and most importantly myself (sounds pretty selfish if you ask me). At the end of all this and before I fell back asleep; I came up with a list of goals I would like to achieve along with a list of things I am good at and things I can improve on. Believe it or not, writing this down was helpful and I drew one big conclusion from it all.
My drone. It isn't good enough for me right now. I am at the point where I want to push the work I do in a way I never have before. My creativity is limited with the drone I have now as I can only control ISO and shutter speed. I also realized I suffer a huge lack in quality, especially after seeing some results from the Phantom 4 Pro that my buddy Vin just got. That being said, I told myself it was time to take action, that I need to do something about this. So.... I am doing whatever it takes to get me to this next level that I feel like I need to be at in my life.
I've come to realize that I am the one who decides what I do and people can give me advice, support me and be by my side or they can look down on me, turn into assholes and do whatever else they want. What is most important is that I know myself and what I want. With that being said, I challenge myself to take on whatever comes my way because in a few years from now, I know I will get to where I want to be. So I will keep adventuring, flying, and documenting these moments of my life and get better and better as each day goes by.
