Monthly reflection

I was on a train going back home from a meeting, looking outside the window at all the beautiful trees and sunshine, and I couldn't stop my tears from dropping onto my nice professional work jacket. I was thinking, 'What am I doing? Am I on the right track? Am I serving my purpose and giving my best value to the world?' Then, this video by Dr. Robert E. Quinn about Life Purpose popped up. He is a great storyteller. I kept thinking about what he said about rewriting his life statement when he felt sad, hundreds of times! Okay, do I have a life statement? Not exactly, but I do have a life purpose which keeps changing from time to time. Do you have one? I think it would be a great opportunity to review our life purpose and do something about it in 2020. Here are some good questions:

  • What do I get excited about? Things in my life that I enjoy doing?

  • What kind of relationships do I cherish?

  • What is the area that I am an expert at?

  • How would I like to give back or help others?

  • What drives me? What do I have a hunger for?

  • What is a dream that I can't stop thinking about doing? How can I make it happen?

  • Where else do I find meaning in my life?

  • What is something in my life that isn't working for me anymore? Does it have anything to do with my life purpose?

Happy December!
