Purchasing my own 360 camera

For a long time, the concept of purchasing my own 36o video camera was like a glimmer of light in the distance. I knew the day would come. Around a year ago – I went on a hunt to find a 360 video camera that would allow me to capture 360 film in good quality without a) Blowing the bank and b) Making me cry because of how crap it was.

At the time – there were a few options: 

  1. Back one of the many kick starter campaigns out there and wait.
  2. Purchase a go-pro rig. 6 – 12 go-pro’s rigged together to form a cluster that captured video in 360.
  3. Spend 1 billion dollars and buy something professional.
  4. Suck it up and wait for another year before I had some real options.

My dear morning routine

If I had discovered this routine 10 years earlier – I think my world would be very different. But I guess, sometimes you’ve got to be in the right time and in the right place to really absorb a new idea and put it into action.

It all started on my way back from a trip to my homeland (NZ – Aotearoa). I’d elected to take an earlier connection to the airport so I was guaranteed to make my flight. This connection got me into Auckland with a cool 6 hours to spare. If you share my love for airports (even little ones like AUX), you’ll agree 6 hours at the airport is always an adventure.

While nibbling a cheeseburger, and drinking sparkling water, I browsed Audible for a new ebook to devour. My plan was to lazily roam the shops and digest some info. I cruised through the ‘personal development’ category, all too familiar with the titles on the best seller list. ‘The Miracle Morning‘ was a book i’d seen before – but was never committed enough to hit the download button and invest my valuable audible credits.

The principles of this book are simple. Get up earlier, do the shit you need to get done every day and live a better quality life.
