Rock Beats Scissors (0:33)

No one remembers who was king when Beethoven was alive.

No one remembers who published The Lord Of The Rings. 

No one remembers what company produced and distributed the original Star Wars film.

No one remembers who invented the “mouse.”

No one can forget the definition of “Carpe Diem.” 

Important because art outshines uniformity, culture eclipses commerce, inspiration dwarfs policy and innovation trumps protocol. And even though we have entered into a time of political ambiguity, and even though the industries of certainty are continuously being disrupted all around us, what matters most is the art you create, the songs you compose, the books you write, the movies you direct, the products you invent and the worthy ideas you produce. Those manifestations will outlast and outlive adversity and mediocrity, and they will be recalled over and over again for generations to come.
