Why I Paint

Practice the philosophy of continuous improvement. Get a little bit better every single day.
Brian Tracy

I am not a good painter.

I have no intention of ever selling a picture.

I, therefore, have no need to be good.  This free’s me up to simply paint and try to be better each time.

This is one take away I have from Seth Godin’s “The Practice”

I can use painting as a practice for practicing the mindset of practice.  Simply painting to practice at getting better at painting and at the same time practicing a practice to get better at practicing.  I don’t feel I am an imposter in painting, and I am better than I was a year ago.

There are also side benefits of painting. It is an activity I can do with my kids.  Some of the art I put on my walls which helps remind me of the practice and saves a little bit of money as well.

But the most important is learning how to focus on improvement and letting whatever value comes out of that as secondary.
