I had a very full four days at VO Atlanta: presenting a talk, leading a workshop, discussing industry trends, doing some professional networking, and then partying like a rock star with 750 of the most amazingly talented and kind colleagues a guy could ask for.
As a result, I don’t have a whole lot of gas left in the tank tonight. This one will be short and sweet.
One slide that I included in both my main stage talk and my workshop that got a lot of positive response included the Latin aphorism above: “Nulla dies sine linea.” (Not a day without a line.)
The basic idea there is that we should make the effort to move our craft forward every day, even if it’s just one line, one call, one audition, one sketch. Showing up day after day (or even week after week as I do here), progress will accumulate.
I learned about this aphorism through The Art Student League of New York, but it turns out that it originally came to us via the Roman writer Pliny, quoting his friend, Apellus.
What “lines” can you commit to making daily this week?
Make this week magnificent!
