When I finish a book, I usually plan on taking one parting thought. Here’s ten random ones from Austin Klein’s masterpiece “Show Your Work”
-Our obituaries are written before we’re dead.
-First, be useful, then necessary.
-You can’t find your voice if you don’t use it. You can find your voice by joining the choir.
-There’s never a space under paintings in a gallery for people to write their opinions.
-The cat sat on a mat is not a story. The cat sat on the dogs mat is a story. (tell Good stories)
-You want hearts, not eyeballs
-Become a documentarian of what you do.
-You are not starting over. You are Beginning Again.
-Pull back the curtain on your Process. People really do want to see how the sausages gets made.
– Even artists need to eat and pay rent. Even the Renaissance was funded.
