Caine's Arcade from Nirvan Mullick on Vimeo.

A few days ago, I was having a chat with a friend about people who are “doers”, people who just get up and do what they want to do in life. They don’t wait for instruction or don’t get too scared about failing, or about the consequences. They just have an idea and decide what they want to do, and then they just go for it. These are the type of people who, generally get the most out of their life, and we all benefit from it. Thinking about it now, I think the fear and the doubt about the consequences of our actions is something that comes with age.

Yesterday, I came across this amazing video about this nine year old kid from L.A. called Caine. Caine is bored one summer holiday whilst he’s “working” at his Dad’s shop. Instead of complaining about being bored, he decides to build his own arcade out of cardboard boxes. Then, eventually, hundreds of people show up to play.

I want to be more like Caine, I think that we all should be. So often we’re bored, we want to do something, we want to build things and create things, but too often we just never get round to it, or are worried about what might happen, or we think about failing. It holds us back, well it definitely holds me back. I want to be more like Caine. I want to make my own arcade.
