Photo-A-Day #2111

I’ve been thinking a lot about what drives people to do things in their life. Are they motivated by fame, money, fear… What is the incentive for me to get out of bed at 5:00am each morning and drive an hour to work, get in a 20 – 30 minute workout, work an 8 1/2 day and drive another hour home. It is basically a 12 hour day with about 20-30 minutes of productive time for self. I’m really thinking hard about what incentive there is to do that day in and day out.

Maybe it is because I’ve been listening to Tony Robbins’ Ultimate Edge (just the two free intro Mp3s, but I am intrigued) and Zig Ziglar’s Inspire Podcast. Maybe it is because I just got back from a very high energy week with some amazing people or even further maybe it is all my work with Kim Ann Curtin and Lisa Rangel. I’m sure it is a compilation of all of it. Whatever it is I’m thinking very hard about what motivates me, what is my incentive.

The other part of that is this photo from today. That photo is of a Cinderella dress that we bought for Eva. She’ll get it when she masters a certain training that all little kids must master sooner or later. The thing is, we can give her all the incentive and motivation we can muster but ultimately it is going to happen when she decides she wants to make a change in her life. Once she decides that she’s ready then the change will happen, and no amount of goading, pressure, pleading, bribing or cheerleading is going to make it happen before its time. She’s got to decide what her incentive is going to be to make that change.

What is Drew Shooting with?
Model: NIKON D80
ISO: 800
Exposure: 1/20 sec
Aperture: 6.3

This is my own personal DSLR camera that I bought half of. My mother-In-Law bought the other half as an investment of great photos of her grandchildren. With over 26,000 photos of Eva and counting, I’d say she got great ROI on the investment. The opinions about them are 100% mine.

How Does Drew Protect His Photos?

Interface USB 2.0 or 3.0
Capacity: 320GB – 1.5TB
Automatic Backup Software:PC & Mac:

Disclosure: I received a number of Seagate devices including the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 1 TB USB 2.0 Ultra-Portable External Hard Drive, GoFlex Home, GoFlex TV and GoFlex Net. I’ll be talking about these devices in the coming months. The opinions about the devices are 100% mine.

    Like I always say, “If you win the rat race, you’re still a rat.” I still haven’t come down from ASW-lots in the works from that.
    Look at what Hotdogman wrote blog post ..Biking in Las Vegas

      Hey Rob,

      I’m glad that you got so much from the trip. You looked like you had a ton of fun. Love the motorcycle shot. But where is the hot dog?
