I care so much about purpose that I’m doing so many things all at once, but the truth is, I don’t really know what my purpose is. That’s why I’m doing all these things, to figure it out.

When I started journaling back in January, I learned to dig 7-layers deep of “why”s. Not only is it a tough exercise, you come out more clueless as to what your purpose really is.

Everything started with me wanting to attend the Genius Network Event. I thought that was my purpose for this year. Why? Because I thought it would mean that I achieved something meaningful and I would make great connections there. Why did I want connections? To help me achieve greater things. Why did I want to achieve greater things? Because I wanted to make an impact on people’s lives? But why? Dunno… is there anything better in life than helping people? Leaving the world in a better place than it was when I was born?

I seriously don’t know. See, I didn’t even reach 7 layers!

I may never figure it out, but I’ll never let that be a source of inactivity. On the contrary, this pushes me to work harder.

Anyway thanks for the topic Tom Kuegler , it gives a lot of food for thought.
