Seth Godin – Challenging the status quo – how high will  you fly?

Art isn’t pretty

Art isn’t painting

Art isn’t something you hang on the wall.

Art is what w do when we’re truly alive.

If you’ve already decided that you’re not an artist. It’s worth considering why you made that decision and what it might take to unmake it.If you’ve announced that you have no talent (in anything), then you’re hiding.

Art might scare you.

Art might bust you

But art is who we are and what we do and what we need.

The artist is someone who uses bravery, insight, creativity, and boldness to challenge the status quo.  An artist takes it (all of it, the work, the process, the feedback from those we seek to connect with) personally.

Art isn’t a result; it’s a journey. The challenge of our time is to find a journey worthy of your heart and soul.
