This week the technology, creative and business worlds lost a true pioneer. Steve Jobs was and shall remain a force to be reckoned with. He was a visionary with the courage and support to make his ideas a reality. One of our favourite Steve Jobs talks is is Stanford College Commencement speech from 2005.

Having a slow week?

Sometimes the working week seems to take forever and I can’t decide if it’s a good thing or not. This week has been one of those weeks for me.

Funnily enough, I came across a video during lunch that reminded me that taking a bit of time out to appreciate the little things around us can be really beneficial. Like, for example, the way a wave breaks in slow motion, or how inspiring a different perspective of the world can be.

So next time you’re stuck coming up with a creative idea, take a step back, slow down and appreciate the little things all around us or try imagine things from a different point of view.
