From Scotland, here's a video of a seagull named Sam who has something to teach those of us who want to be creative.
Hopefully, you're not thinking, "Great. Katie's finally lost it."
But it's true. Sam's video is definitely worth noticing. Why?
Because Sam the Seagull does three things that creative people should also be doing.
- Sam looks for fresh ways to achieve his objective. (Eating Chips*)
- Sam knows what could threaten his success and is always looking for an opening. (The shopkeeper isn't looking.)
- Once Sam sees that the way forward is clear, he doesn't hesitate. He waddles right in there and seizes the moment. (A bag of cheese Doritos.)
Yes, Sam is only a bag-of-chips-stealing-seagull, but he stands out because he doesn't just stand on the sidewalk hoping to be fed, he goes out there and makes it happen.
Enjoy the video below! It's pretty funny.
