Imagine a masterful painting. Each brushstroke, a deliberate choice. Some strokes chaotic, others serene.
Now picture trying to decode it using formulas. Absurd, isn't it?
Yet, that's how we often approach life. A puzzle to decode. An equation to balance. A sum to solve.
Alan Watts once whispered, "Life is not a problem to be solved but a reality to be experienced."
We treat emotions as variables. Happiness, a result to be optimized.
The job promotion. The bigger house. The ideal relationship. We're convinced they'll solve our life's equation.
But what if life wasn't meant for solving? What if, like art, it's meant for feeling?
Consider Van Gogh's Starry Night. To the mathematician, swirling patterns. To the artist, passion and turbulence.
In the realm of business?
Take Apple. It wasn’t just about creating a phone. It was about reimagining communication.
Or Starbucks. Not about selling coffee. But crafting an experience.
Companies that thrive don’t merely solve problems. They paint stories. They curate experiences. They craft realities.
This isn't a call to abandon logic. It’s a nudge to appreciate life's nuanced tapestry.
Your failures? Dark hues adding depth. Your triumphs? Bright splashes of color.
Your experiences aren't for solving. They’re for savoring.
Remember when you were a kid? Every moment, a masterpiece in the making.
You didn’t solve play. You lived it.
So, next time life feels like an unsolvable math problem, Stop. Take a step back.
Admire the art you’re creating. The messy. The beautiful. The intricate.
Life isn’t a series of problems waiting for solutions. It’s a canvas craving your unique touch.
Life isn't an equation. It's an art exhibition. And every day, you're the artist.
