PURPOSE: FINDING & LIVING IT
This month is to view purpose from a high level perspective to learn why this is important to define for your life, how to start exploring this in your life, and to talk about what purpose is and isn’t.
LIVE CHAT ON PURPOSE
Why it’s important to seek out your purpose
Myths around what purpose is (or “should” be)
How you can find more purpose in your life right now
There are many books on this topics, but these are a few of my favorites, that I highly recommend!
Designing Your Life, by Bill Burnett and Dave Evans
This book is one of my faves! It's not marketed as a "find your purpose" type of book, but it applies design thinking to life planning so you find more joy and fulfillment in your life. It does have a heavier emphasis on finding a fulfilling career, but I felt many of the principles around trying new things to lead you to what you love as good advice for any type of purpose, life searching.
The Power of Purpose, by Richard Leider
This is another really good book that focuses in specifically on purpose and why it's important to make this a priority in our lives. Again, there's some focus on this from a career perspective, but not solely on career.
Work Reimagined, by Richard Leider
This one takes the concepts presented in The Power of Purpose a little more deeply and solely focuses on purpose as found through your career (which I don't personally believe is the only means to provide purpose/fulfillment!).
