Wired.com has the story on MythBusters co-host Adam Savage, who gave a speech on obsession and motivation as a driving force.
I love people like him. I wish I had his energy and dedication, but lacking some of it (possibly from coming from the northern parts of Sweden...) I get inspired by it instead.
Watch the video on how he goes on a quest on recreating two famous birds for his living room - without even being a sculptor!
I would hire one or two people like Adam for my Creative Department. Wouldn't you?
Don't miss the sequence near the end where he shows the "wrapping paper" he ordered for it. The "I know" comment is priceless.
