You are the builder of your own world. To build ourselves and our world requires a clear purpose. Without this clear purpose, what are you building? Would you build a new home without a blueprint? Are you wasting any portion of your life without a plan for what and how you are building yourself and your world?
Act and react on your own accord for something bigger than yourself and your small exposure to the world. Your purpose is unique and only yours. Your career is much more than the work you do and the money you earn, it’s your unique way to “become who you are by learning who you are (Pindar).”
Have a purpose. If you continue to learn and apply what you are learning toward your purpose with mastery, your house will be built as you designed it to be. You will become what you were meant to be. You and your world will benefit greatly. A greater impact will be created from yourself and your work with others.
My passions are family, curiosity and coaching. My purpose has evolved to be coaching others to learn how to learn. To continually learn, each of us needs a learning practice. With curiosity and a disciplined learning practice, each will create greater impact in building toward your purpose.
This daily writing exercise is to prompt and expose your unique curiosity. Some writings fit into your life that day and others will be put aside, hopefully for another day. The writing is a coaching mechanism for your learning practice, featuring referenced concepts and lessons from the greatest intellectuals I am still learning from in my purpose. Through this investment in your own learning, you might best become who you are. A difference can be made, an outward ripple effect of impact can be generated through each of you. Sorry, but coaches will innately coach others to reach their full potential.
“The misery that oppresses you lies not in your profession but in yourself! What man in the world would not find his situation intolerable if he chooses a craft, an art, indeed any form of life, without experiencing an inner calling? Whoever is born with a talent, or to a talent, must surely find in that the most pleasing of occupations! Everything on this earth has its difficult sides! Only some inner drive — pleasure, love– can help us overcome obstacles, prepare a path, and lift us out of the narrow circle in which others tread out their anguished, miserable existences!” — Goethe —
