To an Artist, nothing is impossible.

#26 – The Artist Mind always sees what’s possible.

The Artist in me knows that nothing is impossible. If an idea has even the slightest shred of possibility, I’ll work at it until I experience a breakthrough, or it shifts me in another direction, or it becomes a dead end but the insights eventually resurface in a later project.

My logical side, however, is quick to analyze and declare most things to be impossible. Analytics are grounded in known, proven facts. They’re based on things that are already in existence.

Working from the Artist perspective, I’m in uncharted territory with unlimited potential. I do bring some tangibles with me, a toolbox of techniques and a basic foundation of what I’ve learned in the past. But for the most part I’m going where I’ve never been, and perhaps where no one else has gone either.

Sometimes I am rewarded. Other times, I have to alter my course. But the only way to stay on the path is to know that Nothing Is Impossible.

“Impossible is just an opinion.”
Paulo Coelho

“Only those who attempt the absurd will achieve the impossible.”
