Show Your Work - A Manifesto
Show your work
If it’s meaningful to you, share it with the world. If it means something to someone else, your work has legacy.
Live your work
Your work has meaning when you have breathed life in it. Like a blacksmith beating a piece of metal, you too beat your life into your work.
Give your work away
If your work has copies, give those copies away. If the original is worth something to you, giving your work away gives that someone a piece of yourself. Memory may fade, but if your work is a legacy, it can stand the test of time.
Destroy your work
Every life and creation can be destroyed. Your work is no different. If you set your work free, your work can be crushed. This is not a bad thing. Nature is agnostic to the forces of good and evil.
The piece of prose is inspired by the book, ”Show Your Work” by Austin Kleon.
