The “earth” without “art” is just “eh.”
Perhaps you have heard that before.
Let me put it another way for you though:
The earth without your art is just “eh.”
It’s missing something. It’s missing something only you can bring.
Art is not just what most people typically think of as “art.” It’s not just paintings, sculptures, music, and poetry.
Art is leading well. It’s parenting well. It’s in discovery, invention, and anytime pen hits paper (or fingers hit keyboards). Every email you send has the potential to be art. Every word you speak, every idea you think up in the shower, and every time you welcome your spouse or children home has the potential to be a work of art.
And the world needs it. But as I said here, it will not wait for it.
Architects are artists. The world needs them.
Coaches are artists. Teams need them.
Apple produces art with each new innovation.
Starbucks sells art, not coffee.
Your idea, your invention, your solution to any problem…that is art.
Today, resolve to think like an artist. Today, resolve to make art. Today, resolve to share your art.
Then make some more.
Go. Make. Art.
As I promised on Monday, the podcast I recorded about the book The Icarus Deception with Todd Liles and Dan Black is live. You can listen to it here:
Do you view yourself as an artist? What art can you make and share today?
