What Modern Art Teaches Us About Opinion + Opportunity

Yesterday, I made the comparison between modern art and SocBiz.

I shared a piece of (modern) art consisting of this definition: modern art = I could do that + yeah, but you didn’t.

If that is true, and it is, then modern art is also about a) showing up; b) thinking and applying ideas; and c) sharing those thoughts and outputs.

Ergo, it is the same for social business / networking. You see?

Interesting things emerge when you have an opinion, a position, and you are willing to share it.

Having the opinion is important, it stakes a claim, it creates the tent pole. But if you want an opportunity to follow, if you want people to listen to you, if you desire an audience or a following, well then you need to share it, network, hustle that flow yo!

Anyone can ‘do’ modern art, but most of us don’t. Consequently, we are not artists. And, hot dang, we should be artists, all.

More on that tomorrow.
