The Communication Artist Inside

      Observing an artist while she was working, I was impressed by the time and patience given to her next piece, which ultimately evolved into a beautiful painting.

      When painting, the artist will let the first layer dry, walk away, and come back to determine whether it needs more color in one spot, perhaps lightening another area, or to see if something is missing.

      Once completed, the work will be available for others to admire for quite some time. Before letting it go, the artist will wonder, “Am I proud of this now? Will I be proud of this in the years to come?”

      Your personal art (of communication) is on display in every email, text, tweet, letter, or message you send. Today, it is likely everything you send will be recorded somewhere, to be replayed by others at any point in the future.

      In today’s fast-paced communication world we may not be able to afford the same amount of time an artist would give to a painting, but perhaps by tapping into our inner communication artist — before pushing the Send button — we can take a moment to ensure our messages will make us proud now… and in the years to come.
