So every so often I’ll take note of a David Jaffe video blog linked to on N4G and end up watching them.
Well today this happened and I went through and watched some older video blogs and I got to say the guy is pretty entertaining and insightful in his video blogs. I like how he doesn’t hold back and lets his opinion be known.
So far one of my personal blog entry is the one where he rants on Cosmopolitan magazine. If there was ever a guy I would love to work for, and be really motivated to work for (and improve my skill set), David Jaffe is one of them (the others being Hideo Kojima, Tetsuya Nomura and Hironobu Sakaguchi).
As an aside David Jaffe posted the following quote from Apple co-founder (and marketing genius) Steve Jobs:
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
This sort of comment resonates to me, I do sometimes feel the need to want to follow my dreams, but I feel that some lifelong problems I have hamper me from really accomplishing my goals.
