Is this art… or engineering?

Is this art or engineering?

If you are building a bridge, you better be certain about the maximum load.

But if you are writing a song giving voice to a social movement. Or a speech to get under the skin and move people to action.

We can’t guarantee it’s going to work.

With good taste and practice, we might get close.

But expecting success at every turn, is a recipe for unhappiness. Or worse, we give up because it didn’t succeed.

The only thing promised when making art, is the opportunity to do work that matters for people who care.

Whether you’re a writer, therapist, coach or dancing at the edge of any field, you’re making art.

And the first step to a happier work life is to be clear on your act.
