We’re all on a quest to find our own direction in life, asking the same kinds of questions about what we should be doing with our lives. We’re looking for more than a job. We’re wanting meaningful impact. We don’t just want to make money. We want to make a difference. That’s purpose.
Purpose is different than a job or even a career. It’s about more than what we do. It’s about who we are and the kind of person we want to become. When we struggle to find meaning in what we’re doing, know that there is more to life than constant striving.
Purpose isn’t something that we discover as much as we develop it. It doesn’t usually hit us as a bolt of lightning. Purpose emerges over time. We cultivate it. We develop it. It emerges as a product of our deepest values.
At Purposely, we help cultivate the space for this deeper sense of purpose to develop. Through carefully crafted peer learning groups, we help create a culture for adaptive change where, with the help of others, new pathways emerge.
