  • Survey: How Many are Teachers? Artists? Both? Something Else. Raise Your Hand
  • I always thought work and art were very separate
  • I’m not an artist. I can hardly draw stick figure This is me--actually-me with a baseball cap
  • Most of my life I have been Business Professor and consultat
  • Teaching about Leadership and Motivation
  • Went through a time where I was not so motivated at work Hardest person to motivate was myself. I needed to motivate myself
  • wasnt sure what to do. so I decided to take a trip, a backpacking trip
  • I noticed during this one month trip that I didn’t gravitate towards talking with business people or professors. I had always loved art but in focusing on teaching, writing and consulting,
  • Instead, I just instinctively went everywhere to see art and meet artists. When I came back from my trip and went home, I knew I had to do something different and it wasn’t about leaving Keio. I sad to my partner, lets open an art gallery
  • and we did. I didnt quit my regular job. my teaching got better, it became more fun for me and for the students
  • my teaching got better, it was more fun. job became a lot more fun I started working more like an artist and making my work my art. i also learned so much from the artists.
  • People say artists can teach us about creativity but it isnt only about creativity. I learned so many things from the artist People in business and in education can learn a lot from the artists way work, ESPECIALLY ABOUT COURAGE.
  • it takes courage to be an artist. they dont follow the pack. takes courage to be an artist. every one says be a lawyer
  • 2 years to make, after perfecting these for 2 years, they may break doesnt know how the glaze will turn out
  • collaboration not competioin
  • artists don’t compete, they collaborate
  • It’s artists who are continuously changing. always working outside their comfort zoneIt’s artists who start with an empty canvas. start fresh, threw out my notes
  • artists have a thick skin dont care what other people think
  • spontaneous, live more in the moment, I used to spend hours preparing. I realized the best lessons were the ones I did on the train artists dont fail
  • this is also a print artists know about life
  • B
  • but more typically it looks like this. artists know that life is a struggle
  • what do I want to create today. waht projects am i going to start? how can i start fresh, as if it was my first day as a teacher or as an artist
  • beGREAT. AND DONT FORGET TO HAVE FUN. THANK YOU.
