I speak to a lot of groups of people AND Purpose is something that I’m big on, and it invariably leads to someone asking the question, “I don’t know what I want to do. What should I do?”
Not a question I can answer for them!
But, consider this.
If you are standing at the end of a very long corridor, you can’t see what doors are open and what is through those doors. To see through the doors what do you have to start doing?
Moving forward of course.
That’s like life, we can’t see the opportunities available to us if we are standing still.
So, my advice to people is to take the best guess you can and start moving.
You can always go through a new door, but you’ll never know what’s through the many doors available to you if you’re standing still.
Sometimes leadership is about creating a vision and bringing people along.
To love and be loved. Isn’t that all there really is?
Almost everyone I know who has achieved greatness in something, be that business, sports, the arts, they all began their journey to escape something.
There’s a lot of talk now about hiring people for attitude rather than skills.
When we want something, we are taught to visualise that thing, to focus on that image, until we have it.
There’s almost never a completely clean run.
Sometimes wonderful things take you by surprise, they open a new door.
Have you ever moved into a new house and seen something that needed fixing and thought “I’ll get on to that soon”?
Humans are tribal.
As humans we have an insatiable desire to explain untoward events so we can get on with solutions.
