The most essential skill we can take on is learning how to share our passion so others enlist.
When we master this skill, we also build our speaking, writing, and storytelling skills. We develop insight and gratitude for somethings in the world that the majority doesn’t see like we do.
Here’s the catch about “enlistment”-it doesn’t require all of us becoming painters (or taking on any daily whatever). Patrons enlist with their vote, money, or network. Fellow creatives enlist with their criticism, challenging, or experiences. Your mother enlists by not only supporting your art, but seeing all art in a higher and more inspired light.
This is the primary way we want people to enlist: through showing up not just to your art display, but to the art display of artists everywhere. Change takes root and forms the desires of our culture for good.
