Trust the Archulator

Posted by djafan on Saturday, February 19, 2011

Does this look like the face of a man who is unsure of who he is and where he wants to go?

“There are three constants in life… change, choice and principles.”

“If the ladder is not leaning against the right wall, every step we take just gets us to the wrong place faster.”

Stephen Covey ~  7 Habits of Highly Effective People

David Archuleta is going to be just fine.  He is one of the most highly effective persons I’ve encountered and no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.*

Be still your souls.  We all knew this road would not be endlessly smooth with no rocks or thorns.  We all know or should know by now that he is a renegade who will not allow himself to be molded into a product that is sure to sell at the expense of who he is.  In March of 2009, in an article titled “A Growing Force,” I wrote:

“For the true artist, the journey is never easy.  It is as complicated as the one who travels it.  He must labor for years perfecting his craft, which to his own impossible standards, is never fully realized.  The execution of his art is always outdistanced by his vision.  This paradox causes any artist worthy of the name to be plagued at times with self doubt and angst.  He must, moreover engage in constant battle with forces who would diminish his art, and so diminish him.  He must find the courage to be supremely indifferent to the opinions of others.  If the existing state of affairs in his chosen field is anathema to who he is as a person, he must reject it and risk being considered uncool.  Rather than conform to the status quo, he must, like David Archuleta, be a renegade.”

There is no easy path to greatness and there is no one who has ever achieved it without suffering setbacks and heartache along the way.  These are things that must be.  What has occurred with the changes in his management and label are things that are necessary steps along that path.  This is not a detour, but the same road he started on long ago.   His steps have not deviated from the course he set for himself.  His goal is to be taken seriously as an artist and to create a body of work that has depth and meaning.  He knows where he is going and how to adjust his course to get there.  He is gaining a reputation as someone who will not compromise his principles or his artistic freedom.  Now he has that.  Now he can see clearly the path that lies before him.

He knows a good thing when he sees one.
