C4 Atlanta has many changes on the horizon. Nothing bad. Just changes, transitions, and growth. We hit our 5 year mark without a lot of fanfare–we were too busy thinking about the next five years. Later this month, we will start another strategic plan. We always come back to you, the artist. What do you need, want, desire, hope and dream about? The C4 team is obsessed with these questions.
As I sit here at Fuse Arts Center, listening to the rain and cars outside, my thoughts return to the future. I have so much to share with you. But the timing isn’t right now. Soon. Rest assured that plans are about to become action. I don’t lean on planning because of fear of failure. With that in mind, I am going to share a quote for you to mull over on this rainy, Friday afternoon:
Allow me to propose a few suggestions about how to handle the natural resistances that your circumstances might offer. Do not assume that you have to have some prescribed conditions to do your best work. Do not wait. Do not wait for enough time or money to accomplish what you think you have in mind. Do not wait for what you assume is the appropriate, stress-free environment. Do not wait for maturity or insight or wisdom. Do not wait until you are sure you know what you are doing. Do not wait until you have enough technique. What you do now will determine the the quality and scope of your future endeavors. – Anne Bogart
