“Nobody knows anything.” -William Goldman
We don’t get to decide how or if our art will be remembered. If it’ll have staying power. If we’ll have any kind of legacy. It’s not up to us. Thus, we should spend zero time calculating. Zero time trying to please. Zero time trying to reach a certain demographic.
Instead, we should spend ALL our time digging deep within ourselves. Trying to find out what exactly we’re passionate to say and why.
If that desire burns hot enough, let us make our art. Manifest that passion. Do it with excellence and generosity every step of the way.
And then, let the chips fall where they may.
