Ahead Isn’t Far Enough (Read time 0:27)
That crazy, genius poet, George Bernard Shaw, said, “The reasonable person adapts to the world; the unreasonable person persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable person.”
Are you a reasonable Artrepreneur?

"Re" implies more of the same; "again." REsonable. Creation is way beyond REcreation. UnREcognizable. .................................................................................

Flexibility is the key. Make plans and be willing to change them.

| Not even attempting to plan |
This post comes at the best time. I'm in the process of relocating and there is no plan. House is on the market, business is changing and I'm not quite certain where the wind is taking me. I'm starting to sound like a testimonial in a Tim Ferris book. Thanks, Michael, for reminding me that Unreasonable is truly living!

| Unreasonable Seems Natural |
Thank you so very much dear Sir... I needed this reminder right now... There is nothing reasonable about promoting an international combative sport, once foreign to the United States, becoming the biggest promoter of international Muay Thai In America. There is nothing reasonable about marching the largest most environmentally irresponsible corporations in the world, all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, just to ask them to stop willfully subjecting us to deadly carcinogens. Every step of the way, I've been called, just short of crazy, unreasonable... I guess I really am ;-)

| Unreasonable expectations |
With media being so instant for any and everything- it is hard to fight the temptation to jump right in and join everyone with quick results, but I find my best work comes from be labored work that takes time and putting unrealistic expectations on myself and craft. I am hoping to exceed my own expectations with my next cd- how else can I be proud to share it?

When I look at what’s “Reasonable,” I also think, “Reasonable to Whom?” The great Impressionist artists were initially deemed “unreasonable” by the artists of the day. It took time for them to be accepted as “reasonable.” We artists have to look at why we choose our art. Is it to please others or prove something? Or is it because we just have to. It takes some soul-searching to be comfortable with Unreasonable.

I’m a baby-boomer and I remember when the Beatles invaded the USA. Older people judged their hair, their look, their music. Years later at the dentist office, I would listen to the speaker in the background spewing out an orchestral soft arrangement of a Beatle song. I would wonder how did this “unreasonable” music become so “reasonable” and accepted? Perhaps all genius breakthroughs have to start as “Unreasonable.”

None of what I would call “The Greats” were ever reasonable. Abraham Lincoln was criticized by his own party for his staunch anti-slavery stand. Ghandi was criticized by the people around him. Martin Luther King’s “passivity” was criticized by militant Blacks, and his “resistance” was criticized by Whites. Each of these “Greats” did not seek approval of others, but only what they KNEW to be right. They put it ALL on the line for their beliefs. How Unreasonable is that!
