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 cultivating the purpose-grounded life that fosters ongoing renewal, life direction, and long term well-being.
When navigating life's uncertainty and difficulty, 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 cultivating the purpose-grounded life through an intentional process that fosters our own sense of agency--our capacity to take actions that lead to desirable outcomes. All of us have this capacity for agency.
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.
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.
We don't have to go it alone. We do better when we work together. So we facilitate togetherness, a specific kind of being and working together that we call the “peer group process.”
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."
