The world is changing but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. It’s time to do something about it. It’s time to adapt to the new digital economy. So how can you do this? By becoming an artist. According to Seth Godin, you must embrace your creativity and break out into a field you are passionate about. Art, however, doesn’t have to be painting pictures and drawing fruit in a basket. Art is simply any creative task that requires something more than a computer can offer: ingenuity, creativity, and passion.

It’s time to create a better, more fulfilling society by following your passions, even if that means giving up your cushy desk job. With Seth Godin’s advice, you’ll be ready to tackle your passions in no time. As you read, you’ll learn why the myth of Icarus is holding you back, how being like a god will help you succeed, and why society uses shame to control your actions and prevent you from pursuing your dreams.
