The game

Art is what we call it when we are able to create something new that changes someone.*
Seth Godin

Our society doesn’t teach us how to be an effective giver of gifts. The schools don’t emphasise it. The popular culture is confused by it.**
David Brooks

The maths are straightforward:
There’d be a whole lot more
good things in the world if
we were looking to give rather than get –
Things we haven’t even imagined as yet.
Another dimension to this is that
we don’t set up places to give what they can, because of
imposter syndrome” or “stereotype threat,”
We all miss out and the world
is a poorer place.
But the fact is
you’re in the game,
And that changes everything.
