Are You Living Your Life “On Purpose”?

02
Feb 2012

Are you interested in designing a better life?
Have you stopped to check the assumptions you are making about the job you do and the life you lead?
Are you really fulfilled and happy with the work you do and the relationships you have?

Far too many people and especially apparently successful leaders (admired and envied by others) are living lives of quiet desperation.
They compromise and suppress what they really want to do do out of a sense of duty, obligation and peer expectations.

Are you sleepwalking through your life, or are you awake to every sense and experience? Do your relationships enhance and enrich your life, or detract and diminish your spirit?

It is time for you to be frank and avoid self-denial.
What is your “True North” and just how good could your life be every minute, hour, day, week month and year?

Build some time to think and create what my friend Oliver Johnstone calls “elegant design” for your future life. You have choice and can shape it. Mundane or exciting life? I choose exciting!
How about you?

Warm regards Jonathan
