Openness to the “New”—-
By being open to new or other experiences, we allow ourselves to learn and grow in new directions.
Value is in the Process—-
If we take the time in getting someplace with an open mind, the opportunity for fulfillment is much greater than attempting to reach a destination.
Don’t Let Fear Make Your Decisions—-
Experiment, do things without thinking about the outcome, let yourself go, you may like how it turns out and if you don’t then nothing is lost.
Love your experiments as you would an ugly child (borrowed from Bruce Mau)
by repetition and meditation on a process or thought we are able to solidify its meaning and work through tangents.
Don’t give up—-
If things don’t go the way you want, don’t be stubborn and stop; keep going until you get somewhere.
Work with others—-
Foster ideas with other people, thrive and grow together. You don’t know everything, and don’t be intimidated by those who you think might. We all have something to offer one another.
If you’re not enjoying what you’re doing then there’s got to be a better way to do it or try something else.
Fund your own ideas—-
If part of creating is about letting the process guide you and finding yourself in new places, don’t allow funding from outside sources limit your ideas. Also, don’t owe anybody money!
In the now—-
being an artist is a lifestyle not a job. Pull from every experience and allow yourself to live life in the moment, create art in the moment. It’s your life your living, it’s not controlled by anyone else.
