Making opportunities

Posted on: August 26, 2018

I enjoy YouTube videos by the Slow Mo Guys.

Slowing down helps us see things we would not normally notice. This principle applies whether we relying technology like high-speed cameras to slow bullets down or if we use blogs to reflect on learning.


Video source

I learnt something new about Gavin, one of the two Slow Mo Guys, from their secondary channel. He did not have a university degree, but found a different way to work in the USA.

He realised that he needed to qualify for a work visa as an outstanding individual, so he built up his video channel. The platform was essentially an e-portfolio of his work and achievements.

Those who wish to find their own way need to create their own opportunities. Gavin is a good example and a source of inspiration.
