Destin Sandlin from SmarterEveryDay

This is Destin Sandlin.  Destin is not a college dropout but he certainly is what I consider to be a very educated man.  Now, he studied mechanical engineering at the University of Alabama and gained a Bachelors of Science from that. He them moved forward to obtain an Aerospace Engineering degree from University of Alabama.  presently he works as a full-time Missile Flight Test Engineer at Redstone Arsenal.  He is one of the few people who continued his career in the path of his degree.  But in this instance it makes sense.  Rocket science isn’t one of those things that you can wake up and just understand.  Schooling was just the right place for him to be to understand it.

Now Destin is a clever guy.  He created a YouTube channel called SmarterEveryDay where he brings together his love for creativity and teaching.  His unique way of looking at the world is observation and a keen eye.  He isn’t satisfied with just know that something in the world works; he seeks out ways to understand the things that he seems.  Any time he’s faced with a simple phenomenon that he doesn’t understand he always finds the resources to observe, test, and prove these wonders.  He likes to say that he views the world with the scientific method.

Dustin is a little bit of a novelty; I say that because not everyone is a YouTube personality.  But the endurance it takes to consistently and persistently peruse knowledge is something that anyone can have.  It’s not about knowing what you want to study, it’s about knowing what will motivate you to study.  For Destin, it’s simple.  He loves learning.  If he is faced with an opportunity to comprehend something then he will chase it down.  But it’s not that simple for everyone.  Some people seek sobriety and learn through that initiative.  Some people seek money (though that isn’t the best pursuit).  Some people seek culture.  It’s special and different for every person.  You have to know how to fuel your endeavors to learn.  Then the tricky part is not to stop.

Now I’m putting up this video of Destin, one of the many marvelous people that you can find on the internet because I truly believe that what he is saying in this video is valuable.  Dustin has learned that if he looks at the world just a little differently he can make discoveries that change other people’s lives as well as his own.  Through his learning, Dustin has traveled all over the world looking for answers and looking for information.  He never seems to stop moving.  But that’s the power that learning has.  It take you places you never thought you’d go.  He’s not a very great talker but his words have value.  I find that just by watching and following our inspirations we can take to their form.  These people become pillars of our psyche and that way we engage in their teachings.  Who are your pillars, and what effect do they have on your life?

  1. To me, this is a great example of someone who has a traditional education, but that, in and of itself, isn’t what made him successful.
    What did make him succeed (and subsequently make this video) was desire and drive. Both of these traits are available to people – with or without a degree.

    It’s cool you mentioned that knowledge is something anyone can peruse at any time. The idea is to never stop learning. Never stop growing and evolving. These are things people can pursue regardless of how old they are or what their background is. There’s always time to re-invent oneself.

    I know people with advanced degrees who can’t find a job. I also know people without a formal education who are thriving.

    It all depends on what’s inside of us and how we choose to express it. Some of us may not discover the traditional form of success (money/ fame/ popularity) for a while, but the character and growth that develop stay with the soul.

    Thanks for the video. Always great to hear inspiration from others.

  2. thanks for your deep reflection it helps me to think about my own work AND for sharing your students with us!

  3. Inspiring, the video I mean. and I totally agree with @dana, what is inside of us and how we choose to express it matters a lot regardless of the degree we possess or pursue.

    1. Indeed. We just have to know how to harvest that inner wisdom. How do you think that might be done?

  16. I have been browsing on-line more than three hours lately,
    but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did,
    the internet will be much more helpful than ever before.
