What I like about the art business is the weirdness, the boldness, and the rebellious nature of the people that create. Many of the artists I meet are not afraid to try things that just don’t make sense.
They get bored with the sameness and start exploring. Being creative is a daily experience for an artist. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, but after ten years, they have ten years of experience, not one year ten times.
What if we ran our companies that way?
Every day we would throw ideas on the whiteboard like fresh paint, not knowing what the outcome might look like. Challenging the current state of affairs, not settling for old business models.
Asking What if? and Why not?...reinventing the company to fit with its passion, skills, and the demands of today.
What if we ran our lives that way?
Always doing a gut check to make sure the direction we are headed is the direction of our heart. Not settling for the sameness and outdated goals of years gone by. Not allowing this year to look like last year.
What if you ran your life that way?
The drawing above is your new idea, your new passion. Some will look at it and say “stupid”, some will say, “I don’t understand”, and some will say “weird.” Great ideas are weird and most people just can’t handle weird.
Screw em, Go create.
