Follow your heart

According to Daniel Pink, author of A Whole New Mind, you have made a great career choice for our changing society. He reinforces his position with articles in Wired and How Design. Read these articles to get a sense of his position, explained in more detail in his book. Richard Florida makes a similar argument in his book The Rise of the Creative Class. The Christian Science Monitor also agrees, as demonstrated in this article. In addition, this article on Inside Higher Ed states,”According to College Board data compiled by the Art & Science Group, an enrollment consulting firm, there was a 44 percent increase from 1996 to 2005 in the number of high school seniors who say that they plan to major in visual and performing arts.”
