However, this summer I have been wowed by experts in tennis and athletics, and they have validated my personal belief of why we need to listen to people who know their subject and have an degree of expertise.
Being someone who leaves a footprint of creating or adding value is not an easy accomplishment. I'm at 'baby steps' level at best but have been encouraged by two recent encounters.
The way I work is the way I work. The values that I have are a part of what makes it my work. I can't work how somebody else does, and that is a good thing.
Whilst necessity is more commonly known as the mother of invention, I can also confirm it is the breeding ground of knowledge. Even so, I'm still surprised to think how much more cars enter into my random thoughts, and how I have acquired a certain, albeit still very rudimentary, knowledge without even trying.
When people ask me, 'What do you do' I invariably say that I'm a sound editor (evidence: Sounds That Move). However this is just a part of the bigger picture.
