Virtue Series: Originality & Energy

“There is no art without intention. You have to play with intent to commit something.” – Duke Ellington

Originality and passion in what you do is something I feel very strongly about. We have all been told to imitate before you create, but maintaining individuality and style is what makes music so diverse and interesting. The virtue of energy in your work is imperative; be passionate about your efforts, and you will have success.

What is the point of doing something if no passion exists in it? Be it a mundane task or something more lively, if the energy is not in the product or the work, the outcome will suffer. Let your work inspire and be inspired by others.

In short, creativity is multiplied with energy and passion. Pursue new outlets or styles, and always learn, for every experience has value.
