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.
Or do you want to be right?
Recently I was in a meeting with my management team.

Entrepreneurs and doctors are similar in many ways.
Recently, I had an experience that led to a decision that on the outside might have seemed rapid and reckless.
Recently I met someone who inspired me to my very core; where they’ve come from, what they believe in, what they are doing, who they are, the integrity and courage they live with, the way they are living, the choices they are making, the trust they choose to live with…
They say the man who is going to live to 150 has already been born.
