I've been a fan of Daniel Pink's since I first read A Whole New Mind. I've been reading through his latest book, Drive when this YouTube video came across my computer screen.
In the late 1980s when I pioneered the On-Purpose approach I felt the truth of what was wrong with the current thinking in personal and corporate leadership. At the time, I knew the concepts were ahead of their time. In The On-Purpose Business I predict the Age of Purpose and Meaning following the Knowledge Age.
Patiently, I've waited, watched, and worked. So here I am 20 plus years later. Along the way Jim Collins' books, Built to Last and Good to Great, validated the principles of On-Purpose with extensive research far beyond my resources and experience.
Now comes Daniel Pink to share the importance of purpose in organizations. I love it! Society is catching up but still not quite there. As important as purpose is, it isn't as important as being On-Purpose. On-Purpose is the moment-to-moment alignments of living out the defined purpose.
With this caveat, I just love this video featuring Daniel Pink. The more we get the word out about purpose and being on-purpose, the sooner the world gets to a healthier and more whole place.
