Art won’t let this hide

The benefits of a lifetime commitment?

The ability to be so good at what you do, or to do it so differently than the others (or both), that you consider what you do “art”.

Art is what your passion cannot hide.

Whatever you are be a good one

 

This clip reminds me of how remarkable it can be to weave something you said earlier into something you say at the end.

Whenever i know i’m closing with “the Abe Lincoln story”, i make certain i begin the speech making a fuss out of how close i grew up to Gettysburg.

Not what’s on your bookshelf

Disney books
i have not read them all. Some i have read twice. And, i have literally lived them all.

 

You are what you eat.

True?

Probably.

Think about your professional development.

Not what’s on your bookshelf, because all of us pad our shelves with great books we’ll never find time to read. Those great books sure look good sitting there, masquerading as part of our knowledge base.

But show me only the books you’ve consumed.

This hints at who you are.

Not a bad place to start.

However.

However, what really tells us who you are (and who i am) are the questions we ask – how much we care about mastery.

How much we care about our art.

Something we could write a book about.

And 99.9% of us will never do it.

What if we did?

Love the outcome?

jeff noel post it note to self
It adds up when you .think .differently every day, all day.

 

Love the outcome?

Too often, we think our finished product is the measure of our worth.

Well, it is, truth be told.

But..

But we know there’s something more to it yet it eludes us. Right?

Here it is…

The finished product is one part tangible thing we created, and one part who we’ve become in the process.

The insidious transformation from never quitting, over time, becomes a remarkable piece of (God’s) art.

We (our transformations) actually become the tangible product.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
