LIVE ARTS FOR THE EVERYDAY – APPLICABLE THOUGHT #38 – Direction

In a piece, the director has an overview of all the artistic aspects of the performance and fine tunes them so that they come together in a coherent whole that corresponds to their vision. Although there are lots of choices, some things are beyond even the director’s control. Struggling with what is lacking can become a waste of energy and time, which may be better used getting the best out of what is actually there. Even though in our lives much more is beyond our control, sometimes we want to give them a certain direction. What is my vision? How much energy is it reasonable to invest in what is lacking? How much energy can be invested in making the best out of what is actually there?
