This morning, I want to refer you to a piece that I wrote for the January edition (and the first edition!) of the Art of Mastery magazine. The contributors were asked to give some thought to creativity and art. I think that the whole magazine is beautifully put together – and it’s totally worth some of your time.

My contribution can be found on page 8. It’s a little different to what I normally write about on Rolling Alpha – but quite a few of my long-standing readers have liked it, ao I’m sharing it.

The magazine can be downloaded for free from here.

And if you like this kind of thing, I’ve also shared a presentation that I did at an Art of Mastery workshop. You can find that in full blog post format here: A Moderate Manifesto.
