ART: Doing something that might not work in service of others.
I’m paraphrasing the great Seth Godin here. Seth is someone you should definitely check out by the way.
I love this definition because it empowers you to be artistic all the time. Not just when you’re acting, writing, painting, etc…doing something “artistic”…but in your everyday life.
Smile at the stranger you pass on the street.
Say hello to that person you always see in the elevator. (They might even put their phone down and say hello back.)
Volunteer to take on a project at work you know nothing about.
Create a brand new drill for the basketball team you coach.
Recommend a book or article to a friend.
Train your artistic muscle ever day. You and the world will benefit.
