Creativity Isn't Free

A woman asked Picasso to sketch something on a piece of paper.

He does, and says, “That will cost you $10,000”.

Astounded, she said, “You just took five minutes to do the sketch,” she said, “Isn’t $10,000 a lot for five minutes work.

He responded, “The sketch may have taken me five minutes, but the learning took me 30 years”.

Remember that time is money, creativity is money, education is money, expertise is money. The 10,000 hour concept says that in order to become an expert at something, you need 10,000 hours of deliberate practice.

If you’re asking an artist (one who could be regarded as an expert.. no auto-tune!) to do something for free, remember how much work they’ve done to get there and consider if it’s a fair exchange.

Dedication To All...

Here is the Dedication in Bruce Lee's book Striking Thoughts... I wish this upon all of us. We truly Are All One!

To all men and women of every culture and background who recognize with Bruce Lee that "under the heavens there is but one family" - and who dare to question those who would say otherwise. It is your courage and your own "striking thoughts" that will create a brighter future for all of us all.

Keep this in mind as you go through your days. Together we will co-create the most amazing lives we have ever lived...

Namaste,
angeL.
