This 20 min video is awesome. I'm a huge fan of skateboarding (particularly because it offers so many life lessons to me). I also am a huge fan of design and innovation. This talk by Rodney Mullen (Skateboard legend) talks about breaking through the boundaries of limitation, creating a context of excellence, and breaking new ground by getting up every time you fall (and never stopping)
If creativity is the mother of innovation, persistence is its father.
