Are you living a goal or a purpose?
Whilst working in Vienna this week, I met many interesting people and lots of old friends. One of my old friends really showed how he lived his purpose every day- he used this as his compass for everything in his life. I contrast this with many others that I worked with, who were living for their ‘goal’.
They lived very different lives – one in ‘flow’ as he defined things that happened as part of the experience of his life. The other frustrated because he couldn’t achieve a set target.
When you live your purpose, the goals you set are but markers of your successful living. When you live for a goal, it becomes an all-or-nothing contest without satisfaction until that point in the future….that may never come.
Happiness always, or just somewhere up the road? What will you choose? What is your purpose?
