“I live on Earth at present, and I don’t know what I am. I know that I am not a category.
I am not a thing — a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process –
an integral function of the universe.”
― R. Buckminster Fuller
Purpose makes life meaningful and brings long-term value. To find your purpose takes quite a bit of attention, presence and tuning-in to your inner and outer worlds. Love drives purpose. Curiosity leads the way to purpose. The wish to change something does too. To find your love, what you really care about and focus your action towards it is a big task, especially if you are a curious one and the whole world interests you, or at least half of it.
Purpose finding starts with a wish to move towards a more meaningful life, professional and personal. In fact the two are becoming increasingly connected. Our time is not divided into departments, like a university building. So whether at home or at work, whatever field we are working in, we want to spend our time more meaningfully. Because time is our biggest gift, and the tough questions at the end might be “Did I use my time well?”, “Did I do what mattered most to me?” “Did I find my love?” “Did I pursue it like a wild hungry dog?”.
This is what this workshop is about. It aims to give you tools to practice searching and finding personal purpose.
