The Growing Gift Culture
The gift culture is growing in importance for three important reasons:

  1. The internet promotes a gift culture because the cost to give away a digital product is so low.
  2. To be an artist you need to create the work for it’s own sake. To create it with money in mind is to pollute it.
  3. The act of giving quietens the resistance of your lizard brain and frees you up to do your best work.

To be a Linchpin you need to be indispensable.
To be indispensable you need to create your best work.

And, a true artist’s work is always a gift.
Turn your contribution into a gift for art’s sake.
