Ryan McLean : Slightly Unconventional

The Art of Meaningful Work

You are a child of God. Your playing small does NOT serve the world

For me this quote conjures up images of my two children and it reminds me to do more and be the best I can be.

Art used to be paintings and poetry, but now art comes in many forms. Writing, speaking, singing, leading, teaching, working.

Doing meaningful work is a way my way of creating art.

How can I say that thing in a different way so my customer understands me better? How can I change that inflection to create motivation and drive? How can I come at a problem from a different angle or with a different thought process to get a better result?

These questions are what I consider meaningful work. Driving results and creating better interactions and a better world.

The day I decide that what I have is good enough for me is the day I need this quote plastered over my office car with images of my children.

The challenge keeps things fun, and I love work when it is fun. I love my work when I feel it is meaningful. I am an artist…I just don’t know how to use a paintbrush.
