Think about it. Running an arts organization, hell . . . running
a life . . . is about making choices.
Should we perform at this venue or that?
That play or this play?
This dancer or that dancer?
That gallery or the other gallery?
Sometimes those decisions are easy.
Sometimes they are incredibly difficult.
If your mission statement is solid, it should be your guide through
those tough choices. That's why the vague, pointless mission statements that populate our field are so harmful . . .
They don't help you to make the hard choices.
