Dean Black saw a man doing a laborious job but having the best time of it, he recorded the man and shared it to inspire people to make the most of this life.


Durban, South Africa – Dean Black shared a video in the hopes that it would inspire people to make the most of life. He saw a man working on a construction site who was dancing while working. He brought joy to Dean with his small act of happiness.

The trick to getting by is to embrace every moment of life as if it is the best part of life. Turn dull moments into the fun ones. For example, if you find yourself hating the task of vacuuming, play some fun music and dance along. Not only will you add more fun to the job, but you will also have a mini workout in the process.

Hate doing the dishes? Play an inspirational Ted Talk or your favourite show while doing them. Before you know it, the dishes are done, and your mood will be intact.

This is the point that Dean is trying to get across from the video he took.

“So nice to see a guy working and enjoying life. Life is what you make it. Your attitude will determine your altitude.”

People loved watching the video, calling it brilliant and fun. One person happened to drive by shortly after Dean shared the video and said the guy was a “happy chappy” even then.

“The little joys, we sometimes forget to create in the midst of lives challenges. this is powerful clip Deano, brings a lot of perspective” – Monde Hadebe
