Know Your Life Purpose

June 3, 2016

There is a dearth of articles and videos purporting to enable you to solve all your life’s problems in minutes. Adam Leipzig’s Tedx Malibu talk about knowing your life purpose, still caught my eye. It’s simplified and could change with the day and your mood. But for the sake of self discovery and actualization, let’s give it a try.

How to know your life purpose in 5 minutes:

  1. Who are you? Me
  2. What do you love to do? To narrow it down, what is the one thing right now you feel supremely qualified to teach other people? Writing
  3. Who do you want to do it for? Myself. Entry level / learners in PR and marketing communications
  4. What do those people want or need? Guidance in the ways of the business; encouraging support and kindness; useful feedback
  5. How do they change or transform as a result of what you give to them? They gain confidence, learn real-world skills they can use to become successful.

Was that useful? A little. I should try it again in a few weeks and see how my answer changes.

“Happier people make it a point to make other people happy…. if you do this, you will be taken care of as well.”
