Don't just dream, build it.


Bob says: "We all have dreams. Many friends often share with me the dreams they have held so long in their hearts. But it is not enough to just wish and hope. Dreams are not wished into being; they are built! And like a house, it may start with an idea or a design, but it is realised only when you start to lay down its foundation and put in place each and every brick. I want to encourage all of us who have dreams to 随心 築梦. This phrase simply means: follow the heart; build the dream."

Bob Lee’s passion in photography extends from the canvas and his books, into the lives of people. His work – whether of skyscrapers or food, faith or politics, the rich or the under-privileged – has been highly commended, and speaks of a desire to use photography as a window to touch lives and bring about a change in the human spirit. Bob Lee runs The Fat Farmer.

Good Sweat is an old-fashioned reminder that what matters is not the scale of the work or its reward, but to take care and to take pride in whatever we do. Good Sweat also celebrates the spirit of those who persist, however humble or challenging their job may be, in perfecting their craft.
