Channeling Seth Godin’s Gratitude

What a way to start a week!

Seth Godin’s Monday blog was entitled “The artist who dances on the edge.”

Seth offers words everyone should read.

Read, then adapt.

Make the words, and the attitude, your own.

Too many people believe it’s futile to offer praise. Doesn’t the artist (and writers and authors count) know he’s doing well?

That’s not the point.

Is the artist’s work meaningful to you? Tell them why. There’s no need to have a speech prepared.

“Thank you. That gives me hope.”

Such a tiny effort could keep those artists making art. It’s not about the money. They’re in it to matter. Matter to you and the world.

Gratitude is creativity, too. Thank you, Seth!
