Start with Purpose

Purpose doesn’t scream for your attention. It begs for your intention.

Who are you? What is it you truly value? What do you desperately want or wish to become?

These elusive, yet penetrating questions so often are drowned out by the loud, incessant sounds of the day. The demands of our immediate now ensure that the real questions, the essential questions, will wait a little longer. Another day. Next year.

But here’s the problem. If we don’t start with purpose, we can always re-engineer a reason why. The urgency takes front and center, and we then justify rationale for how we got here. Purpose can wait just a little longer. Right? Just how long are you willing to keep your calling on hold, and what might be the cost of indecision?
