Abandoned Art

justart

I saw this quote floating around on Twitter, and it made me think on its true meaning:

“Art is never finished, only abandoned.” -Leonardo da Vinci

Is there truth to this quote?  As artists (writers, poets, painters, photographers, actors, musicians, etc.), is it true that our work is never done?  Never completed?   Only abandoned?

I’m not sure how I should honestly feel about this.  Should this be a good thing?   Should I be concerned?  Sad?  Angry?

What do you think?

I Beg To Differ: Dream versus Goal

We all have dreams, right?  So, what is the difference between having dreams and making them come true?

Let’s go consult a dictionary shall we?

Dream: “a condition or achievement that is longed for; an aspiration.”

Goal: “the object towards which an endeavor is directed; an end.”

So therefore, Dream tends to be passive while Goal is all about action.

Hmm…

In other words, you can dream big and you can dream small; heck, you can dream all day and all night long if you want but (yes, there is a but here), if you want to make a particular dream come true, you need to put it into action.   You need to set a goal, a directive, have a game plan on how to turn that dream into reality.

“Dreams can inspire you, but goals can change your life.”

Do you have a dream that inspires you?  Then let it guide you.  Motivate you.  Drive you until it becomes a reality.
