“don’t let uncertainty talk you into pursing a back up plan instead of your purpose.” @bobgoff

Purpose can sound big and scary. Purpose can sound like a life time commitment. I’ve written before that ‘we miss our goals a year at a time because we fail to think in decades’. Short sightedness seems easier and so do back up plans! I used to say I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life forever, maybe you can relate. The shift for me came when I started looking at purpose as attributes and opportunities.
Aligning purpose with values and not with jobs. What does that look like? For me it looked like seeking jobs that may not be the most high paying but allowed me to invest in people ( I’ve been a barista for about ten years … It’s like being a day time bartender - you get to hear all the things), It also looked like prioritizing time as a more important resource than money. I am driven by loving people, pursing passions, and crafting my art forms. Who are you? What do you believe in? What kind of community do you long for? What product would make your life easier? That’s the beginning of purpose and innovation. Risk is scary, we would rather just choose safety and boredom over risk of failure. We choose the lesser life for predictability and safety, but in doing so we choose emptiness. In what areas of your life do you crave vibrance- we’d love to hear from you (send us a DM). | | |
For businesses: When was the last time you quizzed your staff on their individual strengths? Of course roles have to be filled, but there is some wiggle room in structuring. Hearing your staff members talk about their visions, strengths and goals gives you constructive insight into team motivation and efficiency. Also remember they are a team member now, but your company may be a launching pad for bigger and brighter things for them in the future.
