The formula for freedom

Here is a one-minute video that I cut for you from the popular internet show “Hot Ones”.

In this video, Dave Grohl, the former drummer of Nirvana and the frontman of the rock band Foo Fighters, is explaining his idea of “the greatest drummer of all time”:

My sign of a good drummer would be, if you hear about 15 seconds of their playing and you know who it is.

Watch the whole video, but his last sentence is what we need for the future:

If your name is attached to a very specific thing, then you fucking got it.

If we want to be a successful artist, studio, or a creator in the new internet, we do not define ourselves by our work or technical skills, because there will be many. This game is about owning a corner of the internet.

“Get paid for doing what only you can uniquely do.”

― Naval
