Take A Step

Sometimes we need to step back
so we
can step
forward.



We need to step back so we can see how to step forward.

Find your path in a community that’s committed to helping one another along.
Life is not a straight line. We all need space to step back, refocus, engage in re-creation and renewal, and move forward in new ways. At Purposely, our mission is helping you cultivate the purpose-grounded life that fosters life direction and long term well-being.

Find Your Path

Working harder is not always the answer. We also need to take a break and reflect not just on what we're doing but why we're doing it. We need new ways of moving forward.

Purposely is a peer learning community fostering creative purpose, an intentional process that cultivates our own sense of agency--our capacity to take actions that lead to desirable outcomes. All of us have this capacity for creative purpose.

See the Gaps

The problem often is the gap between our good intentions—the big goals we want to achieve, the dreams we have, the things we tell ourselves we want to do—and our ability to actually be intentional.

Even when we are at our best and we feel on track, there are always new challenges that require adaptive change and new paths to discover.

Take Charge

Purpose is about self-direction—taking charge of our own learning, taking charge of our long-term outcomes, taking charge of the changes we need to make to be the kind of person we’ve always imagined we would become.

When we engage in this deeply reflective process of creative purpose and tap into who we are and the kind of person we want to become, new pathways emerge.

Thrive

We thrive in new ways as we cultivate vision--our capacity to step back and see the big picture of our lives, values--what defines who we are and the kind of person we want to become, and vitality--the energy we need to actually take purposeful action and make things happen.

This is a journey of self discovery that unfolds before us the farther we go. We find strength for the journey, and thrive, when we share it with others.

Go far, Together

We don't have to go it alone. We begin with a simple conviction that we do better when we work together. So we facilitate togetherness, a specific kind of being and working together that we simply call a “peer group.”

The peer group is a highly intentional gathering together of friends that create for themselves a culture of learning, support, and ongoing renewal. As the old proverb says, "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together."
