We are all different. Our personality, our ways of thinking or living our lives and even our hobbies are different also – but why? Because our passions are representing something distinctive, a particularity of our personality.
If you consult the dictionary, you will see that passion is described as “a strong and barely controllable emotion.”. If you ask me, passion represent that inner and crazy power you suddenly get and need to fight for that something that you believe in and you want to build. And you know passionate people, doesn’t matter the subject of their madness – in our article I am about to reveal you the story of Jose Manuel Hermo Barreiro – the man that spent 1220 hours in building the world’s smallest v12 engine – and no, I am not kidding.
The man – Jose – better know as ‘Patelo’ – is an ex-naval mechanical constructor, who has dedicated his time to a hobby that some of us may find it crazy, but where his resulted products are a work-of-art. He spent more than 15,000 hours into this complex but tiny hobby (you can call it addiction, I call it passion), but the way he talks about his realization reveals that there is more to than meets the eye.
Contrary to what he does, to his creation – Patelo is not a patient man: “I have no patience at all, I’m a very impatient person; I do this because I love it” – this statement reveals exactly what I have told you earlier, at the beginning of this article – where there is passion involved, the result is always amazing – even though it takes more than passion to struggle with this type of project from A to Z, but as we can easily observe, he doesn’t mind…
You can watch the video-story below, the story of a man that still lives his life with passion and creativity, a man that we can only admire!
P.s. All his creations are not completely fully functional, they are not using internal combustion for running, these little jewels are air-powered, but that doesn’t matter that much, though.
