S:0986 Quote: Mastery

(Quotes are capsules of information, reinforcement or enlightenment.)

“It is only by drawing often, drawing everything,
drawing incessantly, that one fine day you discover
to your surprise that you have rendered something
in its true character.”

Camille Pissarro

 

Coaching Point: This is of course advice from an artist to other artists, but it extends to the rest of us as well. Doing something over and over frees you from trying to get it right. It frees you from living only in your head, logically and mechanically.

Whatever it is you are here to do, do it often, do it everywhere, do it incessantly, do it with passion and “one fine day you discover to your surprise that you have rendered something in its true character.” You have awakened into mastery.

What is the purpose of your life? What is your ‘art’? What are you here to render?
