Session Notes: Poke the Box

Someone watching this today is going to change everything.

We’ve branded ourselves to death.

Revolutions destroy the perfect and enable the impossible.

We’re experiencing the death of the industrial age and it’s being replaced by a new age of tribes.

We still want what everyone wants – to be in sync.  We want to do what other people, our people, are doing.

These tribes need leaders.

The system of following the rules/mass production has infiltrated our churches.

We’ve created a culture that teaches people to fit in.

We have a choice in the post-industrial age to change some of these things.

There is no map for being an artist.

Competence is no longer sufficient to get a job.

Don’t wait to be picked.  Pick yourself.  If you want to write, write.

If you believe failure is not an option, then neither is success.

We are constantly looking for a reason not to do our art… a reason not to put it on the line.

If it’s worth doing, what exactly are you waiting for?

The world is begging for you to lead them!
