Art is seeing the world that does not exist…Civil rights activists are artists. Athletes are artists. People who imagine something that is not there. — Oscar-nominated filmmaker Ava DuVernay
Every change that leads to flourishing is made possible by artists who imagine a better, more helpful version of the world and then commit the rigor required to make it real.
If you are enrolling others to make a change, you’re an artist.
If you are solving for an unmet need, you’re an artist.
If you routinely ask “what if” and “why not”, you’re an artist.
Artistry is the habitual contribution of work that makes things better.
If you want to be an artist, you can become one by choosing to be a person who does generous things for other people.
