Video: Obvious to you, Amazing to others

There are some good animated videos from Derek Sivers YouTube Channel that are worth watching (try a few out and enjoy the distraction for a few minutes) but this one I especially liked. This rang true with me and my blogging activity; what is run-of-the-mill or simple to me is special and innovative to others, in the same way as reading someone else’s blog post or research has inspired me may not be  anything special to them … ??

So, who has inspired you, and who have you inspired … ?

This other one is a little sickly in the way it gets the message across, but essentially it’s about considering who is on the other end of your communication (personal, business, etc) and there is a need to consider how they will react to your rant, to your action, etc.
