Lead, Empower, Develop

First blog in what seems like maybe a year – I’ve been busy writing personal stuff and a whole bunch of other stuff, and a couple of people close to me mentioned this blog and asked why I haven’t been writing… I guess that’s a sign, so here’s a short piece I wrote in my phone last night… Hope it resonates…

In business and combat, it’s mission first. Personal opinions are not typically a factor. They’re silenced, ignored, kept to the individuals that have them. The mission continues and is typically accomplished.

With artists, as with Soldiers, and businessmen, they often think and wonder, “Why am I doing this? Is this fair to us? Is this fair to them? Is there a better way?” Only the artist is really given a chance (not after they have reached commodity status on a major as a part of the machine) to voice their thirst for knowledge, a knowledge they might not have the fortitude to deal with, nevertheless they want that knowledge.

They want to understand how shit works, just like we all do, however the artist – more than anyone else has the ability to ask the question (however much resistance it’s met with by producers and other collaborators). Answer the fucking ‘How’. Better yet, answer the ‘Why’. Share the knowledge with those who want it. Those who want it, those who continually question, who beg to understand WHY — They shall be the ones to move society forward, to progress, and to better what we have done. Be that progression. Lead, Empower, Develop.
