Be an Artist

An artist is someone who uses bravery, insight, creativity, 
and boldness to challenge the status quo. 
Seth Godin, “Linchpin”

A lot of us look at tomorrow as just another day to get by. Another day to survive. One day closer to the weekend or to that next milestone we’re anxious to meet. I wonder what tomorrow would look like, though, if we changed our perspective and looked at each day like artists?

It has been said that you can’t drive in a nail with a screwdriver. That’s the hammer’s job. It’s also true that you can’t tighten a screw with a hammer. We all know that the screwdriver was made for that.

What have you been made for this week? 

Be an artist.

Art is a personal act of courage… Something one human does that creates change in another… Art is anything that's creative, passionate, and personal. You can be an artist who works with oil paints or marble, but there are artists who work with numbers, business models, and customer conversations, too.
Seth Godin
