1 IDEA FROM ME
Has anyone actually asked you "What is your Purpose?" and if so, what did you say? What would you say?
I find this question primitive and annoying... This is because I feel like it creates way too much pressure to do and fulfil a specific goal.
It potentially removes from the idea that life is one big holistic experience, that is supposed to lived.
Throughout our lifetime, we pick-up multiple roles which would ensue multiple purposes at any given moment.
Some roles may preoccupy your mind more dominantly, and others not so much.
What is important however, is identifying with what is important to you based on what you want from life.
This can easily come from your experiences or from a collection of things that inspire and enthuse you.
In turn, this may give you some primary aims you want to achieve that satisfy different areas in your life, but it doesn't have to be a BIG PURPOSE per se.
However, I do recognise that people who have identified with a purpose can in fact do great things! It is, and can be a good thing!
But the model does not work for everyone and really, there are no real hard rules to this game...
As we age, evolve and mature, our life changes, and by virtue "one's purpose."
Saying all this, I do believe in having a "sense of purpose," which is linked to having drive and being clear of your priorities in alignment to your values.
Hopefully this is giving you some perspective. So when someone next asks you "What is your purpose?" say to them "To be myself every day" 😉

1 BOOK RECOMMENDATION FROM ME
This is a story about a man named Joe, who is a true-go getter in life. As Joe aims to go-get-it, he is moving further away from his goals... He has a big deal to close pretty soon and is struggling to do so. In addition, his close rate at work hasn't been up to par...
Out of desperation, he seeks advice from a pronounced colleague who suggests he goes to meet the charming, and sometimes enigmatic Pindar.
Over the next week, Joe learns 5 keys laws from Pindar, that will help him not only become a better business man, but a better person in life.
When I read this book for the first time, I was in awe of how it made me think very differently with how to approach my life and business.
I cannot understand estimate the power this book, especially in story form, has in relation to how I navigate my life.
Here is the first law for you:
The First Law - The Law of Value:
Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment
