Process Makes Perfect

Beautiful art, just like great life outcomes, doesn’t come out of nowhere. As much as we like to think that the right people can wake up on the right days with the right doses of divine inspiration—and then make something beautiful—that really isn’t the case.

Today’s presenter, Jeremy Rheault (or simply “Ro”) of The Art Jar shared his complex process for bringing his awesome and unique painted-sealed cardboard cutouts to life:

He starts with special cardboard he’s sourced specifically for its size and quality, and the he glues 2 to double its thickness instantly. He then meticulously draws his cutout lines, using a certain pencil he’s also specifically selected. After this, he goes to work with a collection of razor blades, cardboard knives, and even some power to get his awesome intricate shapes. It’s finally then that he gets to incorporate his lifelong artistic painting and drawing talents.

Today as part of his presentation, he brought along some small squares and his tools so we could try and get an appreciation for the effort. It took focus!

It was a good illustration of the fact that like with art, the vast majority of people chasing life and business success only ever take the time to appreciate the final outcomes that others have or that they want for themselves. In this, they tend to miss the 90% of practice reps, planning, and process execution that helped achieve that end.

Ro’s presentation today was an excellent reminder that with the right amount of practice (lots), a well-executed process including sometimes mundane or meticulous steps can genuinely help create beauty and happiness in our lives.
