19- Outcome over ego

As an artist, I regularly see people’s need to own a piece of a project getting in the way of the final product.

In everyday conversation, it’s when the desire to be right gets in the way of making the right decision.

In humanitarian work, it’s when we let our desire to feel good outweigh what will do the most good.

In art, it’s when our idea of what the art should look like prevents us from seeing what it could become.

They say that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. We can lower that risk if we’re wary of the ego and focus on the outcome.
