Do you feel like your work is meaningful?

Naturally, we all want to feel like whatever we’re devoting the vast majority of our time and energy to, day after day, year after year, decade after decade…

Makes some kind of positive difference to others. That’s why I was intrigued when Renee wrote in. She’s struggling because she’s just left a meaningful career as a chaplain to start a fine art business.

Art has been something she’s dreamed about for a long time. But going from chaplaincy to a business focused on aesthetics leaves her worried that her sense of fulfillment won’t be as strong or rich.

This concern about creative work not being ‘meaningful’ or ‘important enough’ is something I’ve heard many times. From jewelry designers, to painters, singers, actors, dancers, writers — really anyone involved in some aspect of the arts. And, I’ve heard this from people outside of the arts, too!

If you feel insignificant because you can’t see how your work really changes the world — this MarieTV is for you. Not only do we cover why art really does make a difference, but you’ll also learn 12 smart ways bring meaning to your work, no matter what you do.

Now, I’d love to hear from you.  We’ve got a three-part question today.

1. If you’re an artist or art lover — what are even more ways, besides the ones I mentioned, that art helps to change the world? Let’s create a big list!

2. Has a piece of art ever changed your life? If so — how?

3. How do you bring meaning and purpose to what you do?
