I’m reading Daniel H. Pink’s, A Whole New Mind, Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future. According to Pink, the time has arrived for the artist (right brainer). Pink suggests the MFA is the new MBA.
Our economy is in a funk and as it gets better, a new level of creativity will certainly be in demand. A bit of logic and a lot of invention is what smart companies will be calling for. The basis of the book is that real creativity cannot be automated or outsourced.
Creative intelligence will be valued in a new way. The artists primary skills may bring in a top salary, paid vacation, insurance, and other company perks…the keys to the kingdom are changing hands. Yes, Pink.
