This is the third video in The Motley‘s Men of Distinction series. The film features Ruben Hughes, the creative director for Two Inch Cuffs. The biggest reason I am so interested in these films is that they shed insight into what inspires young men to get out and create. Ruben offers some useful advice in this regard:

When it comes to inspiration, I pick up on a lot of things around me. I love the water, I love the ocean, I love yachting, and I love music because everything is fashion. With what we do, I’ve learned a lot just because I’m not sitting at a desk all day. It’s online, but at the same time we’re out and about all the time; and I think that you learn a lot because this is not a classroom. Someone’s not sitting there telling you how to do your job. You’re making a lot of mistakes, and in the process you’re learning a lot.

Ruben’s message here mirrors a lot of what this website is about. Finding inspiration in everything around you and learning from failure are two of the most important elements of finding success in life. I always find it refreshing to find young men making their way in this modern world when so many fail to thrive, for whatever reason.

A hat tip to the nice people at The Motley, who always create quality films.
