What Do You Do?

Is this the most commonly asked question when meeting someone new? I think it probably is, well besides asking someones name.

I’ve been thinking about this plain little question a bit and I will quote my friend Jimi Hunt from Live More Awesome here “I think it’s a lazy question. Most people don’t actually like what they do a hell of a lot so why make them talk about it?”

I eat, sleep, shit like everyone else. I work, which I feel that’s what you were asking?

It seems what we do for work is the most interesting thing for people, which isn’t interesting. It’s boring. Is your work boring? Mine is, it just has a greater highlight reel than most.

Creating a business and brand around the idea of doing whatever I want is a lot harder than you’d think. You probably think it’s hard and like I said, it’s harder than that. I have bills to pay and a mouth to feed so I need to make a certain number of change each week just to survive. Lucky for me I’m not too lazy to make my lunch, I don’t have a drug or alcohol addiction and overall know how to live fairly cheaply.

This week has been spent in front of the computer, writing and editing from the last little trip away amongst other things. I went away again for work, or should I say “work”. The beauty of this creative business is that I can go away and enjoy myself for work. Consider it branding and advertising as I don’t make substantial money off doing it but it really adds to what I do! So here it is below, a little bit about what I did last week.

Thursday myself and good friend Mike took off to the Far North swell chasing. We woke early Friday and hit the beach for a day of smiles

With an easing swell and fine weather we were up early Saturday, beach bound. This place we skimmed in the arvo is actually scene to our best couple of skims ever, sadly it isn’t in form currently

And they don’t call it Sunday Funday for nothing do they? Why not walk for fricken miles in bare feet? I don’t regret it but I will wear shoes next time

So there it is, a little slice of what I do. Stay tuned for more highlight reels.
