Are You Having Mission Drift Just to Survive?

I'm at a San Francisco conference called Dynamic Adaptability: new thinking and new strategies for the arts. One of my favorite artists/administrators is now speaking, Jaime Cortez. We sat together on an Oakland Cultural Arts grant panel last year and I was so inspired by everything he has to offer.

Jaime just stated that his art is now blending with his consulting work. Like me, he cobbles together many projects to make a living. He is constantly learning and trying new things and making an impact with meaningful work. The challenge, he states, is making sure that you are clear about your mission and not letting it drift just to survive. Words of wisdom.
