Do what you love. Love what you do.


Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.

Can you imagine today Magellan or Columbus getting VC money? Why should we take risk anymore, when so much wealth is around us?

Only an appetite, and a willingness and passion to take risks can secure future rewards.


This is an idea I can get behind. These guys can manufacture prosthetic legs out of PVC pipe for $25.

Watch this video. It’s astonishing! This guy goes from being a social outcast, unable to walk, to a regular guy who can walk, dance, and even play soccer.

Absolutely mind-blowing. Well done gentlemen. Well done indeed.

Anyone can and should follow what makes them truly happy. When you make your life your art, others will see the value in it.

The Darwin Deez show this weekend was amazing. For starters, the setting was intimate, the crowd was lively, and above all, it was clearly evident that this band absolutely loves what they do.

I actually went to this show by myself, because the friends who were available to come along preferred to play video games. They missed out. I would gladly go back (and pay double) to see them perform again.

This song is my favorite. It’s called DNA, and if you listen carefully to the words, you will see how beautifully mournful a delightful tune can be.

*Sorry for the shaky camera and low-quality audio… it’s the best I could do given the circumstances.


What makes an influencer? Will you be one?


INFLUENCERS is a short documentary that explores what it means to be an influencer and how trends and creativity become contagious today in music, fashion and entertainment.

The film attempts to understand the essence of influence, what makes a person influential without taking a statistical or metric approach.

Written and Directed by Paul Rojanathara and Davis Johnson, the film is a Polaroid snapshot of New York influential creatives (advertising, design, fashion and entertainment) who are shaping today’s pop culture.

“Influencers” belongs to the new generation of short films, webdocs, which combine the documentary style and the online experience.



I was asked at work to create a presentation called “Secrets of Success.” The goal is to define what success means to me, as well as what has moved/inspired me to succeed.

Here’s what I came up with. I hope you enjoy it, dear Tumblr.

Secrets of Success View more presentations from Nate Bagley.

  • You can’t know what you’re good at unless you try new things. Being a Jack of All Trades requires having the courage to try something new… a lot.
  • It’s hard to find new things you enjoy doing unless you’re willing to leave your comfort zone. The most exciting lives are those lived uncomfortably.
  • Success requires you to conquer your fears.
  • Part of conquering your fears, and finding happiness deals with being 100% ok with who you are.
  • There is no luck. There is only passion and purpose. When combined, things just seem to fall into place.
  • People with passion and purpose are creators. They create relationships, ideas, and movements. They live their love. Their life is their art. Everyone else just has an opinion. Who will you choose to be?
  • Creating with purpose is fun. Unfortunately, we often confuse success, or purpose with fake work… or meetings.
  • If what you’re doing now doesn’t make you happy, change something.
  • Being willing to stand up for what you believe in is what separates the good from the great.
  • LOVE > MONEY. It’s simple math. And each one requires relatively the same amount of work. Which do you choose?
  • Your head and your heart are different, but equally important. Trust them both, but also make sure they keep each other in check.
  • You can change the world… but only if you’re ambitious enough to try.
  • You are important.
  • Choose your path. Go! Do!


Find something you love to do. If you don’t make money at it, at least you love going to work.
