Connecting advice to art (adviart).

Know thyself and know your enemies and you will be invincible.

Know thyself and know your enemies and you will be invincible. This adviarter took a quote from The Art of War by Sun Tzu to describe his advice. The adviarter put his initials on the shell. He used blue because it is his favorite color. Blue is often considered a “guy’s color”. The red and green were chosen to contrast again the blue. The shell was picked because of its natural light color–making it easy to get a point across using words written out in color on the shell.

This adviart sticks out in my mind because of a conversation that we had relating to knowing thyself before the adviart was created. Knowing thyself and being self-reflective is so key to moving forward in life–to know what we want, what we like, and what we don’t want/don’t like. There is merit to understanding ourselves first and then our enemies to appreciate the perspective of others. This perspective allows us to make strong decisions and withstand time regardless of what comes in our way.

How do you go about learning more and more about yourself? Your enemies? How do you think this knowledge will help you in the long run?
