Do I Have to Share?

Ideas find their strength when implemented and shared widely.

We can take Austin Kleon’s book for example, Share Your Work. The entire book and its ideas would not matter at all if Austin chose to keep it to himself. If he chose to keep it away from the publishers, keep it away from his readers, then the creative community might be a different place today. He took a chance in allowing others in on his work and people happened to like it (a lot). So much that it would be difficult to go forward in your creative career without hearing someone else bring up the book’s title.

If we spend more time hiding our ideas and our work, we miss out on being able to help its intended audience.

Share your work if you have something worth saying, or a meaningful story to tell (because somebody else might need to hear it too).
