A Really Big Inspiration To Me

I remember checking in on the Lancaster University news site shortly after this happened in 2009 and seeing this video clip. I had no idea who Kevin Roberts was before seeing this video but since then I have been following his blog and KR Connect religiously!

Listening to Kevin talk to the new graduates I felt like I could identify with the people he was talking to as I had sat in the same hall just 5 years before. Kevin was talking about a way of living life that I wanted for myself. As I heard the words I also knew that this life wasn’t the one I was living. I wrote down Kevin’s advice for making decisions and have come back to it when I have been making decisions since.

I don’t think I can say anymore because what Kevin says kind of speaks for itself. If this doesn’t inspire and motivate you to be and do your best then I don’t know what will.

Thank You Kevin!
