Another Rodney Mullen post from me. It’s not about me. I just want to draw more attention to the man himself.
Normally I’d curate the post a bit more but again, it’s not about me.
Below are a few quotes/notes I found epic while I watched the video myself for the third or fourth time ;p
The ability to just go back to something for the sake of loving it.
Falling becomes normal, and picking yourself up again is normal. Resilience
Because we feel like outsiders and we all find the mutual sense of belonging by shaping our community with what we do.

I trip out because I don’t come out in public a lot, I really don’t.
Sharing and feeling connected with people through what you do.
Danny Way – Falling and getting up
What we learn from getting up again and again it changes you.
I wish we could teach that – MIT Professor
I’m gonna show that in our class – YALE Professor
You are on your own. You gotta go through adversity.
Authenticity pushes out style.
That’s just my personality. It’s always been on my own.
That component has always been in me.. I’m a nerd.
I broke my ankle I feel like I should quit -Rod

I don’t own a dog currently but I am a dog lover. Some people are not dog lovers and instead hate or are maybe afraid of the unleashed beasts. Unfortunately, my commercial office lease states we are not allowed to have dogs in the building because of that and other reasons. Sometimes though, we still get visits from man’s best friend and it really adds to the work environment at our agency if they manage to sneak in the back door unseen and unheard.

Dream of Working Anywhere
The term nomad dates back to the 1500′s but has remained very relevant today by taking a new form of the digital nomad. When I was in college I realized that I wanted to be able to work from my laptop anywhere in the world. At the time I did not know exactly what I was going to do to allow that but I knew it would be with computers and technology and my goal was set.
That dream has turned into a possibility but not a lifestyle for me because I am mostly working full-time out of a beautiful San Diego office, an anchor. Luckily I’m the operations guy so I’ve set myself and our crew up with tools that allow us all to work remotely whether that be at home, a hotel, or a remote island or mountain range. But still, we are so grounded here in San Diego MOST the time… Perhaps it is time to pull the anchor up?
