Purpose is an amazing word that has captivated my life and work since the mid-1980s. This idea of simply on-purpose, however, is not meant to amaze you with a word, its concepts, and meaning. Instead, this is your invitation to an adventure filled with discovery toward revelation of your unique identity and significant fit on the planet. Life is to be experienced. And a life with a profound knowledge of purpose is life predictably experienced more resolutely, meaningfully, and joyfully.
Purpose is also one of the most misunderstood and frequently used words. As a result, we’re left with counterfeit versions of purpose. Authentic purpose is like nothing you’ve ever experienced. A picture postcard of the Grand Canyon is a mere snapshot of its beauty, depth, and grandeur. But, you haven’t experienced the Grand Canyon until you’ve stood at the Canyon edge in utter wonder and also stood deep within it and looked heavenward. Purpose is likewise to be experienced with an inspiring gasp of joy and varied perspective. It is big! Resist settling for the postcard and believing you’re living in the real thing.
