Purpose… how do you find out yours?

So how do you go about finding out what your reason for being alive is?

From the research I’ve done, I’m going to list all my passions and interests first; the things I consider important and I would enjoy doing if money was no object.

This can be hard, but it helps to set some time aside to do it properly. I gave myself an hour to fully focus on this. I used some mind map software (iThoughts) to get everything written down and out of my head. This is what I came up with:

Pretty extensive, right? Now comes the hard part, figuring out what makes a role that’s exciting enough to leap out of bed in the morning!

Starting from scratch

So I’m in the process, this time seriously, to look at my purpose in life and work, and to finally take action on what I’m supposed to do.

Instead of doing this privately, I thought you might want to come along for the ride?

Perhaps because you might be in the same boat (yes I know, they’ll be more of that, so hold your sides tightly) and want to know what steps to take next to find out your WHY and act on it.

Maybe you know all the theory like me, but something might be stopping you taking action. I know that feeling very well.

Sometimes you just have to start at the beginning. What’s stopping you?
