Don't Try To Be Great
"In his book. Based on a commencement speech he gave at Dartmouth College in twenty eleven. Charles Wheel tells a story about how he was once a guest on a news program hosted by Chicago journalist Phil Ponts now the show is filmed live. So of course if you mess up or say something you regret there are no do overs. They're only hundreds of thousands of pairs of eyes watching. You do whatever it is you did or say whatever it is you said polished or not just before airtime Charles the writer recalls how. He was feeling right before. He said he was nervous. Self-conscious in hoping to impress in that very moment fill. The host leaned over with just thirty seconds to live and said these words. Charles never forgot. Don't try to be great. Just be solid. The book is called ten and a half things. No commencement speaker has ever said and in it. Charles Leland writes this. That simple advice had a profound effect. Because I knew I could be solid. That was within my control. I could just talk about what I know. I could answer questions candidly. I could have a fun and interesting conversation with other guests. I might have some fun. Equips I might not. Phil's advice was liberating because it removed the pressure to deliver what I wasn't certain I could deliver and it made me better at doing what I knew I could again. The book is called ten and a half things. No commencement speaker has ever said and don't try to be great. Is thing ten and a half like many of you? I've been thinking a lot about this class of twenty twenty both like I said the high school graduates college graduates to in addition to all of the end of year events. This graduating classes either missing out on her having to modify because of the pandemic the truth remains they're still graduating. They are moving into the world of grownups and the expectations in this world can be while extreme to say the very least. This world is filled with people who are trying to be great in the same way. I hope doing the next great thing is a kind of phrase for graduates to hold onto. I think Philpott he gave to Charles. Leland seems like a relief as well. Don't try to be great. Just be solid. It's not the message we usually hear after all the phrase is greatest of all time not solid est of all time or does that even mean to be solid years ago. I listened to an interview with author Philly Anderson who by the way is also a real life dear friend of ours here. North Carolina but in the interview Phil shared about his thirty year. Friendship with author and priest Brennan Manning in that interview Phil says this about Brennan Guy who's famous for what he has to say yet. What I remember most about him was how he sat and listened. He touched my life with his kindness. To fill. Brennan was solid. Another story comes to mind about Brennan himself one that he told his book souvenirs of solitude and it was about how years ago after a difficult phone call he had. He left his home. He was distracted and he had an appointment. That day. To give a talk to the inmates of Trenton State prison when he stood up there in front of the inmates he had been distracted. Like I said right before. He got up there so without stopping to think about his surroundings. His first words of greeting to the inmates were well. It's nice to see so many of you here when I read that statement. I tip my head back and laughed out loud all by myself mainly though I recognized how Brennan responded to his own words he wrote. I'm frequently not inform on top or in control. This is part of my poverty. As a human being and self acceptance without self concern simply expresses a reality he writes an impoverished spirit prevents the poor man from becoming a tyrant to himself. Brand was not anxious shocked or even much concerned about this misstep in front of the inmates. Instead he had a light heart about it if he had been trying to be great that day. This mistake would have crushed him instead. He showed up solid which meant there was room to make a mistake and to move on without crumbling. We try to great. We risk becoming a tyrant to ourselves when things don't go the way planned one final quote and then I'll be done Dallas. Willard writes about the misunderstood phrase that we find in the Bible about dying to self he says in this is a quote when we see people dominated by their lust for glory or insisting that there will be done we will be in a position where we can be very firm in not cooperating with them even if their loved ones when we live in the shepherd sufficiency and died to ourselves. We become the most firmly established people in the world. That quote is from his book. Life Without lack the most firmly established people in the world so class of twenty twenty. Don't try to be great. Just be solid. Be Solid in the way you live in your house until the next phase begins in the way you hang out with your family your choice to laugh instead of roll your eyes in the way you choose to listen to your younger siblings. Who will miss you more than they can possibly say. Or put into words be solid with how you enter into your next experience not like a tourist who watches from behind a camera lund's and insists all of your usual comforts are close at hand and not like an expert who thinks she's supposed to know everything as best you can enter into your new situation ready to be fully present and engaged when you can and free to withdraw when it's necessary be solid enough to be boring if you're trying to be great you might not notice the people and the margins your neighbors who are working twice as hard for half as much. If you're trying to be great you might be tempted to bend the truth to get ahead. So just be solid honest simple and you
"leland i" Discussed on Essential Oil Solutions with doTERRA
"We always appreciate hearing from you. Today we're excited to talk to Leland Jones. About what supplement he uses and how they've changed his life Leland. Thank you so much for joining us today to talk about this super important subject. These ravin me and I appreciate it of course so supplements are something that I think. A lot of people are skeptical toward so. Why does our body needs supplements or does our needs supplements in addition to the food that we already eat now? That's good and I can see why a lot of people are feeling that way and to be honest. I felt that way myself. So before Doe Tara. I had a different career and so what I did is I went to like one of those big stores that you can buy things in bulk and I actually brought the supplements and I put them on my desk. Because I felt like if I had him on my desk I could remind myself to take more often and I co worker. Who showed me about the pros and cons of these different supplements and so that I learned was one our soil's that we're currently using to grow our crops are not nutrient dense like they used to be and the other thing is. We're supposed to be eating like we're supposed to be eating healthier than we are. I'm sure there's no shock dating it's like your plate of food for dinner is supposed to be like a rainbow of colors of different vegetables and unfortunately that is not the way we are eating as much as we should so yeah. We need to be taking supplements one because people like me aren't eating healthy and to the food isn't doesn't have the nutrients that they once did. And then the other aspect is. We need those supplements to replenish our body of Fill in the gaps of all the things we are missing so yeah I would say it's very much important and that is so interesting and you're definitely not alone. I know for myself. My plate never looks like a rainbow so there definitely are gaps. That I'm sure most people have that need to be filled. So you mentioned other supplements that you taking before you were introduced to Tara. Are All supplements created equal? Not at all not in. I was actually really. I don't know if the word is shocked but I was really discouraged when I learned that all these supplements like you like a lot of people are wasting a lot of money and so not all supplements are the same and does tearing and we all know this like tears. Mission is to be pure like everything's one hundred percent pure may have supplements that are also infused with essential oils. It is the perfect combination. And so the only thing I love about the Tara's that I don't just have to tell you about their supplements like once you take you can feel the difference to them and I've taken like I said I've taken supplements from companies. I guess other brands and I never did feel a difference but I thought what I was. Doing was being proactive with my health and it turns out a lot of those supplements taking did nothing to had no had no real significant benefit to my body and so with Doe Tara. Yeah it's it's a huge difference and with that so you talked about not being able to feel a difference. What Canada vitamin do for your body when you found one that is working for you. What is the difference that you see? There's a couple of things one I feel during the day. I have an increase in energy so I feel like that's their like that increase but also like mental capacity. I feel like I have more clarity of thought like I don't feel like I'm like I don't know if the word is like fog but you know how sometimes you sometimes I feel like I. I've woken up but I'm still half asleep in the whole day that way and then when it's time to go to bed I'm like wide awake and so I feel like a multivitamin is helped me with that when I'm awake during the day. I don't have that fog in my brain and I have more of the clarity and the other thing that I like about it is I like having an increase in my quality of sleep so I like when I go to bed at night. I feel like I'm sleeping better. I like during the day I feel like I'm more awake more alert. I have more energy. So that's those are the benefits. I enjoy those are definitely benefits that I think everyone would like to have in their life a little bit more energy better sleep and I just feeling like your body is working the way that it should. I think that's incredible so Leland. Can you walk us through? What supplements Tara has that? You've utilized in your life. Oh it's kind of a long list. That's okay so my wife. My wife was the one that introduced me to essential oils. And then after I started using essential oils I had this belief in Tara and so when I stumbled upon the lifelong vitality three different. You know the three different bottles. That's what I started taking and so the three different ones so that's your micro plex the EMC. So that's your Vitamins and Minerals Your Z. Omegas of that's Exit Omega. That's the other one. And then the healthy are S. That helps you on a cellular level. So those were the three. I started taking and to be honest. I'm not trying to contradict myself but the first couple of I was taking them. I just Kinda felt the same like I didn't like my wife was like really hyping it up and I was like you know I kinda just feel the same here and it wasn't until I didn't take him for a day is when I felt the big difference. The other time I felt a huge difference is we had gone on a family vacation. And we're at an amusement park and we're you know how that is you're standing by your cooking in the Sun. You're spending tons of money. Your kids are yelling at you right and I had brought the lifelong vitality but I had forgotten to take them. The first two days are numbered taking it the third day. 'cause we went to this amusement park for four days so on the third day. I remember taking a n feeling such a huge difference in those different areas of feeling more clarity and feeling like I had an increase in energy and things like that so those were the three that I started taking and then I was introduced. A couple of other ones like So Deep Blue Rub. That's a that's the oil deep. Blue Oil is rob. Is is amazing. Use probably daily but then does tear came out with a pill form so it's the Deep Blue Polythene on complex. And just so you know. I had a practice that word times in the mirror. Like I haven't even. I can read that where let alone pronounce it off. So that's another one that I use a lot and then like right now. I'm picturing Mike pillowcase. In the kitchen so I use the lifelong vitality deep blue ocean terrorism. I you tear after every meal usually just one one pill but if I eat like I'm not trying to admit anything here but like I like I like being five. Ako waffles for breakfast like that doesn't even faze me and my wife is like you eat like you're like like a little kid that ran away from home and so. I do a bunch of junk food and so if I eat five. Ako Awful Sushi. I happen to. I'll I'll take more terrorism. Now take anywhere from one to three terrorism's so usually if I feel like I feel like I can add like that heavy weight in my stomach like I shouldn't have eaten that many offals. That's when I know I should take more than one or two times. And so that's another one. I take all the time another one. I love is DDR prime. And I don't know if it's my favorite but it's up there. Ddr prime they make it in a soft Gel and they also have an oil. And I know you know that but I just like to repeat a twenty but I take that one and that one I feel amazing with and then once in a while I by the might owe to the Max and I use it to the Max is really interesting to me so even though I eat a ton of junk food and I admit that I actually don't drink caffeine because have seen has a weird effect on me like if I drink caffeine like right now. It's like Kinda morning time you know early at early morning or I'm sorry late morning if I drink caffeine there's a chance I'll be awake until like three or four in the morning. It's like I think some people would enjoy something like that. I hate it and the other thing it does to me. It makes me jittery and it creates all kinds of like panic in my mind of like also I'll lay in bed. I'm sorry this is a tangent but I'll lay in bed and I'll worry about like identity theft and my couch so I can't i. I avoid caffeine as best. I Cam O- minute to the Max is totally different on my system. So I don't get jittery I. It does not keep me up late at night or anything crazy like that but it definitely does give me this sense that it's helping sustain my energy level throughout the day and I and I and I do it for that so anyway. Sorry that's a long answer but those are for the most part the ones I currently take. I think that was a great answer. I think it was very comprehensive which is super helpful. My final question for you Leland is what would you say to someone who is maybe teetering on the fence of whether or not to start introducing supplements into their life. Oh sure I mean my quick answer would be listen. It's got a money back guarantee so I'm talking about the lifelong vitality passing so is three different. So just try it. You have nothing to lose many. If you don't like it you don't you don't get the result you think you. Should you send the bottles back and get your money back? So there's not like nothing crazy that's going to happen that you're GONNA lose all this money or anything and the other thing is you just need to try it out. Everybody's body is different. Your reaction like I don't think everyone has the same reaction to caffeine. Otherwise we'd live in a really weird society so we don't we all react differently to certain things so you WanNa try these supplements and then see how your body reacts. And if it's in a positive way which I'm very confident it will be. You'll be grateful that you're using them and then you'll continue to use them so me personally. I WANNA make sure every month I have like on talent and terrorism and then I kinda cycled through different ones like right now. I'm doing the dual capsule tumor Joe Or they're called Soft Gel but then I also do like the deep blue and the you name it. I am bound to the Max so anti Prime. So he went. I Yeah I would highly recommend you. Just try it and I think you would have wonderful benefits and there's no loss of financial to it either. Bullying thank you so much for talking with us today for sharing your insight and your advice on supplements we really appreciate it. I'll thank you. Thanks for having me. Thanks for joining us.

The other time I felt a huge difference is we had gone on a family vacation. And we're at an amusement park and we're you know how that is you're standing by your cooking in the Sun. You're spending tons of money. Your kids are yelling at you right and I had brought the lifelong vitality but I had forgotten to take them. The first two days are numbered taking it the third day. 'cause we went to this amusement park for four days so on the third day. I remember taking a n feeling such a huge difference in those different areas of feeling more clarity and feeling like I had an increase in energy and things like that so those were the three that I started taking and then I was introduced. A couple of other ones like So Deep Blue Rub. That's a that's the oil deep. Blue Oil is rob. Is is amazing. Use probably daily but then does tear came out with a pill form so it's the Deep Blue Polythene on complex. And just so you know. I had a practice that word times in the mirror. Like I haven't even. I can read that where let alone pronounce it off. So that's another one that I use a lot and then like right now. I'm picturing Mike pillowcase. In the kitchen so I use the lifelong vitality deep blue ocean terrorism. I you tear after every meal usually just one one pill but if I eat like I'm not trying to admit anything here but like I like I like being five. Ako waffles for breakfast like that doesn't even faze me and my wife is like you eat like you're like like a little kid that ran away from home and so. I do a bunch of junk food and so if I eat five. Ako Awful Sushi. I happen to. I'll I'll take more terrorism. Now take anywhere from one to three terrorism's so usually if I feel like I feel like I can add like that heavy weight in my stomach like I shouldn't have eaten that many offals. That's when I know I should take more than one or two times. And so that's another one. I take all the time another one. I love is DDR prime. And I don't know if it's my favorite but it's up there. Ddr prime they make it in a soft Gel and they also have an oil. And I know you know that but I just like to repeat a twenty but I take that one and that one I feel amazing with and then once in a while I by the might owe to the Max and I use it to the Max is really interesting to me so even though I eat a ton of junk food and I admit that I actually don't drink caffeine because have seen has a weird effect on me like if I drink caffeine like right now. It's like Kinda morning time you know early at early morning or I'm sorry late morning if I drink caffeine there's a chance I'll be awake until like three or four in the morning. It's like I think some people would enjoy something like that. I hate it and the other thing it does to me. It makes me jittery and it creates all kinds of like panic in my mind of like also I'll lay in bed. I'm sorry this is a tangent but I'll lay in bed and I'll worry about like identity theft and my couch so I can't i. I avoid caffeine as best. I Cam O- minute to the Max is totally different on my system. So I don't get jittery I. It does not keep me up late at night or anything crazy like that but it definitely does give me this sense that it's helping sustain my energy level throughout the day and I and I and I do it for that
"leland i" Discussed on Marketing Today with Alan Hart
"Bit about you. The person behind the work in the behind the strategy on the business one of my favorite questions. I ask you know. Is there an experience of your past that defines or makes up who you are today so I think the easy answer would be to say like the company that helped co found? But I'll pass on that one. I'll actually go back to something a long time ago. I think I was in second grade. My teacher is named miscued. Vicky and I remember we were drying in class and the class twenty kids and stuff and it was something for Thanksgiving. I think we're joined place MATS FOR OUR FAMILY. Thanksgiving and I was drying a scene of these children's native American sitting at a table. Eating there's four isn't clouds and there was a sunset and the sunlight was hitting the clouds turning them. You know like a combination of orange and red and stuff and sort of romantic setting that second grader. Could draws good and I remember Miss Bixby. Picking up my artwork. I was so completely confused why she did that. And walking into the back of the room and showing it to what was our teacher and I was so confused why they were talking over this thing that drone and looking at me and pointing at me I actually thought I was in trouble or something and I later. I later came to learn that that was the first moment when not my parents had recognized my artistic ability and what ended up happening was the school ended up. Creating a special class essentially was just me with teacher than art teacher that they brought in to work with me on art and stuff like that and for some reason. That's always stuck with me because I think that was the first time that I really felt that I was talented at something in that somebody recognized that talent the end. It's always stuck with me like I still. I still remember the clouds and stuff and I so remember what the classroom look like and stuff. I think everybody has had or should have one of those moments where they feel like. They've been plucked out for having something or doing something special because other people have taken notice and want to help you with that. So it's one of those things that I think from a very early stage in my life getting a lot of confidence that I had something exciting ahead of me. I love the moment in the in the detail. That you you you you can almost see little leland sitting there in the classroom as you described. It will now that we're talking about your younger self. What advice would you give your younger self? Maybe NOT SECOND GRADE. But maybe if you're just starting your career again what would you do different or what would you say how man pardon me is like well? I'm very happy with how my career has progressed. Where I am and stuff so on one hand nothing but on the other hand trillions of the question. I think the thing that because of who I am. I love absorbing information and I love knowledge and I love learning and I love kind of building my brain as if it was a by stepped right instead. What I've learned over a period of time is that that's important and that should always be a lifelong thing. But when you over invest in your brain and you underinvested building relationships in a network around you your brain at a certain point in your life doesn't matter anymore no matter how much knowledge you have doesn't matter because you don't have networks to activate that knowledge so the advice that would have to my younger self is invest in building relationships in a network as much as you invested building. Your brain will on a personal note. Are there Brands or companies or causes the youth. Feel you follow or you think other people should be taking notice A. I don't really pay attention to my industry much to be honest with you. There certainly are brands and companies. Doing amazing stuff out there. No question but I and more fascinated by things that happened away from our industry and taking those learnings and those experiences and those references and drawing upon them when I'm trying to crack probably within my industry. That's what I get really excited about like. I'm I'm deeply fascinated with a more scholarly study of Greek mythology right now and the city of Athens from government and cultural standpoint. And I'm finding so much in those studies. That are fueling what I'm doing my professional life much more. So than if I were reading a trade obligation or case studies or anything like that the Example may have heard people say that before but not to that degree you know they. They may say well you know. I remember somebody early on in the in the podcast. You know working for a CPT company said you know really paying attention to entertainment brands. I thought yeah Outside category thinking what's with moving people to consume over and over on entertainment platform if you will but I've never. I don't think I've seen somebody take it to that level of going back in time and studying other civilizations or other other structures if you will so that's fascinating thanks for sharing that and it's not even that like in my career. I spent ten years deeply fascinated by systems dynamics and that has informed a lot a lot of how I think about designing departments designing businesses. Now that's fascinating will last question for you a little bit closer to marketing than the city of Athens. It just curious your top of mind. What do you feel like is either the largest opportunity or the biggest threat that's facing marketers today? The biggest threat is the diminishment of creativity. I think creativity is in many ways under attack. Because it's not measurable and if all marketers both client side and otherwise continue to move towards only things that are measurable we will exist in a world of just optimization and be stuck in paths and never be able to evolve out of them. There's a lot of people believe that when they find success you have to keep measuring it to optimize against it but what that doesn't do is it doesn't help you realize whether you've found success on small mountain or a big mountain and if you can get to the top of that success are you. Is that really? The tallest mountain you can be standing on and creativity is one of those things which helps you find the biggest and there needs to be much more emphasis not on the -sarily just disproving that performance marketing is filled with flaws transparency issues and trust issues and stuff though. I think that is an important realization that everybody needs to have but there needs to be more emphasis on the positive meaning putting into creativity and understanding of. How do you measure like? There's one thing that I'm a fascinated with right now. I have no idea where it's going. But there's a thing in mass called indirect proof the idea of proving something by proving disproving the contrarian or showing that the contrary the contradictory or that proof is false. I don't fully understand what I'm sort of learning about it right now. But what's interesting to me about it? Is that creativity is is very difficult to measure no question. I tend to think of creativity as a bit of a black hole in the sense that you know it's there and it's happening enormous impact on everything around it. But you can't see it so what you do is you measure everything around it to understand if the where the black holes are in a way. I think that's kind of the same thing with creativity. Tried to directly measure creativity the way you directly measure sales or you directly measure media efficiency. You'RE GONNA fail because it doesn't work that way and so. Is there a different approach to measuring creativity? That isn't the same paradigm that we've applied to measuring other direct things and so this idea of mathematics have an indirect proof is a way of measuring something or maybe not even measuring something proving the validity of something by without directly proving. And so. That's something that I've only recently begun my investigation just to try to understand how that works but there needs to be a very concerted effort to understanding the impact of the Roi of creativity in organizations and in a way that is unique to creativity as opposed to taking the metrics of sales which is transactional and applying that to creativity which is not transactional and saying did creativity have an Roi. Because it's not just about marketing. It's really about entrepreneurs it's really about value-creation it's really about innovation. It's really about building entrepreneurial resilient creative cultures which is whatever. Ceo Wants Right now so. I think if you unlock that measurement or that way of validating creativity. It's not just about did the campaign worker not or is bringing in creative smart strategic creative professional's enhancing our bottom line. It's really about much much more than that and so I think that's an opportunity that I wish. More people in the marketing industry would agree agree.

Eadweard Muybridge, the Man Who Captured Time
"Edward Mobridge was born in eighteen thirty and kingston upon teams in England. His birth name was Edward Muggeridge but as he marched through the circumstances dances life he would change his name many times. Such a thing was pretty uncommon in the eighteen hundreds but he was pretty uncommon man. His hometown town was the historical site of coronations where the early British kings were crowned and ceremony and the earliest of. These monarchs were Saxons and perhaps inspired by that the young man would change his name to Mobridge and adopt the old spelling of his first name. Edward The vowel heavy spelling E. A. D. w. e. a. a- are D-. It looks like eat weird but sounds like Edward seeking adventure. He left for America at the age of twenty two telling his grandmother that if he didn't succeed and the lofty goals he had for his own life. He'd never retired. He arrived in New York with a bunch of extra bells and his name and little else he. He worked there for a bit but was thirsty for more. So he left for California soon after it was eighteen fifty-five during the gold rush when scores of people headed west to mind for the valuable metal. He sought his fortune through other means. Though he opened a bookstore in San Francisco the city was growing in the people had money need to spend by most accounts he was mild mannered and his business was pretty successful in the bustling city in eighteen. Sixty he made plans to head back to Europe for. We're a visit and to do some business. But he missed the boat so instead he booked passage on a Coniston goggin across the American continent to head head back east and from there he would sail to his native England. Kind of still go. aggies were the common covered wagon that you see all of the images of westward travel. It was was a fateful trip and the first time that a horse would fundamentally alter his life. These wagons were pulled by horses. The one carrying Mobridge was pulled by a team of six six mustangs but somewhere in Texas the horses pulling his wagon broke loose and started off leaving the wagon cascading on a high narrow trail above Iraqi fall. The driver couldn't get control and the WAGGON tumbled loaded with passengers and their belongings thinking quickly as the accident that was unfolding. Edward tried to cut an escape hole in the wagons cover but in the commotion he was thrown from the vehicle and hit his head on a rock. During the fall he recovered from the head injury in Arkansas. For three months though he had no recollection of the accident. One of the other passengers had to tell oh him what had happened. In addition to some memory problems he now saw everything in a disorienting. Double Vision Edward also displayed definite personality. Finality changes it was a brain injury. And as you might guess these can have a great impact on a person in his case. The injuries came with aggressive episodes. Grandiose thinking and general unusual behavior the people who had known him before noticed a distinct difference in his personality. After recuperating more New York he headed back to England where he stayed for several years when he returned to America in eighteen sixty seven. He considered himself photographer having learned a lot about the new art form and he had acquired some very nice equipment which he had brought with him. It was still a developing art. In fact the I photograph in history was made in France just four years before Edward was even born. By the time he was working eighteen sixties. The technology was still very limited mid and far from the powerful cameras that we carry in our pockets every day. Edwards equipment filled an entire horse cart in addition to the new career as a photographer he also sported an enormous beard and he called himself by a host of new names including Helius. This was not not the same old Edward. His photography made an impact on the world. He had a definite fascination with stopping time. Just a few years after a man named Matthew Brady Changed America by photographing not just the people of the civil war. But the battle scenes and carnage mobridge was documenting in beautiful detail. Some of America's because most amazing and mysterious natural sites. If you've never been to Yosemite Valley you still probably heard about it's staggering beauty. This led to it being being among the first of the land to be designated as national parks but before it welcomed hordes of tourists to gaze at its beauty weighbridge made some of the first and certainly some of the best photographs of the amazing land. Some of them are so amazing. They look like epic landscape paintings soon. Everyone wanted a piece of Edward. Helius Komo Abridge the same year. He came back to America. The Secretary of State William seward negotiated a deal to buy Alaska Lasca from the Russian Empire. But for years this was called seward's icebox or seward's folly because most people thought it was a costly mistake to buy the enormous swath of northern land in an effort to convince people of its value. The government hired Mobridge to join an expedition travel with his immense. It's photo equipment and a darkroom and photograph the Land Resources and native people of the territory. They are some of the most important documents we have of that time time period still today but it was back in California that his fame truly solidified and it was largely. Thanks to a man who would give his name to Stanford University his name was Leland Stanford and he had a problem he was a robber Baron and oh this was a problem for a lot of other people. This wasn't a problem as so called robber. Baron he like several other industrialised of the late eighteen. Hundreds was rich and powerful but he had gotten that way through some pretty shady and morally questionable ways used political influence and connections to get rich not to mention taking advantage of many less fortunate people he had been the governor head of the railroad a Horse Breeder and he owned what was at the time the largest winery in the world on his gigantic estate. He raised eight hundred racehorses. Feeding these horses alone wasn't expensive task in order to do so. He also operated a a sixty acre carrot farm just for food so you may ask yourself what does a guy like this. Have to worry about Mr Muggeridge. I I have a problem. That's not my name. Mr Mobridge have rows riot again. I have gone long again call me. He Leo's Leo's that's right heels as in the ancient Greek personification of the sun being okay. Okay Helius so I have this theory and it's more than a hunch but I just can't prove it and I may or may not have bet money on it so I I need an answer. So how can he LEO's help. Well he'll ios this concerned horses. You see I believe when a horse runs at some point in its stride dried all four of its speed are above the ground so at some point the horse has touching absolutely nothing yet still moving forward but it happened so quickly that I can't be certain. Do you understand yeah. He Leo's digs that. You want me to prove it with Pictures Helius. I'd like that very much which it's going to cost you. Some money got plenty. Don't worry. Coup crackle added now it was actually a pretty common disagreement of the time and Leland with his stable full of horses and pockets. Full of cash was in a unique position to solve it he just needed. Someone like mobridge invest best craziest and most creative photographer in the public eye to solve technical issues when a horse ran. was there ever a moment when all four of its feet were off of the ground many people believed it could not possibly be true. The first tries to capture the airborne image. Each were failures. It was impossible with the cameras of the day to catch the fast horse. At just the right time the beast was just a blur so they went back to the drawing board. The project was derailed by mobridge being the defendant in a murder case which is another story entirely but once that was over they got back to work. More bridge hung white sheets up along the race track. And whiten the track itself with chalk powder this would reflect any an all light which he knew would help. The camera. Camera capture a clear image of the fast horse next. He designed a camera with quick shutter speed. It may have been the first of its kind as most cameras needed a long Exposure to whatever was being photographed people would have to sit still early photographs. So that they didn't show up as a blur that would not work with a galloping horse.
