Leadership Tip of the Month: Put Your Weirdness into Your Work

"These words were spoken to me by famed voice-over and recording artist Ken Nordine. This was many years ago, and I've carried these words with me ever since. He recognized that we all get a little weird from time to time, but it's how we choose to channel our weirdness that's key. To offset my very ordinary life, I infuse every project I touch with experimental and fluid creations. It's what's led to my best work and most successful endeavors. With weirdness and imaginative thinking embedded in all facets of your work, you are free to spend the rest of your time enjoying the little things in life, a balance that is delicate yet so profound."

--David Slayden, founder and executive director of designer-founder accelerator BDW
