There’s a masterpiece in your handsPosted: December 7, 2012
It took you many moments to get to your moment, and many moves to finally arrive at that move that made all the difference – alex umole
“There’s a great story about Pablo Picasso. Some guy told Picasso he’d pay him to draw a picture on a napkin. Picasso whipped out a pen and banged out a sketch, handed it to the guy, and said, “One million dollars, please.”
“A million dollars?” the guy exclaimed. “That only took you thirty seconds!”
“Yes,” said Picasso. “But it took me fifty years to learn how to draw that in thirty seconds.”
I am told that Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke only 700 words in terminator 2 and was paid $15 million meaning he was paid $85716 for saying “hasta la vista” baby.
Someone admonished that, as a skillful artisan of your craft, you must think of each piece you create as the embodiment of an entire career, not just a moment in time or a commodity to be consumed.
Finally remember, as you think about these words, that even your mistakes contribute to the masterpiece you will become. You may seem like a mess, but you are just a miracle going somewhere to manifest!
