Life is about being in the NOW. Purpose puts you there. Productivity is the forcefield that keeps you there.
Productivity isn’t the end goal, it’s a means to an end. Being productive for the sake of being productive isn’t the point. There has to be a purpose … a Why? behind all of the lists and todos and productivity tools and that constant … almost buzzing … incessant desire to be more productive.
Have you ever pondered any of the following, mountainously intimidating, meaning of life questions … What’s my Purpose in life? Why am I here? What’s my Why? … and given up because your head be like 🤯? Welcome to the club.
I want to help simplify the “What’s my Why?” question.
I’ll start by letting you in on a little secret. My Why? … your Why? … everyone’s Why? isn’t some big, daunting, unattainable thing. In fact, it’s precisely the opposite. The spirit of it’s simple, really.
Everyone on 🌎 has a shared Why? And it’s right under our collective noses:
To be your best ME 😇 as often as possible so you can make a lasting IMPACT 💥 on others.
The more you can do the things that make you happy … living your Values ♥️, playing to your Strengths 💪 and pursuing your Passions 😎 … the more often you’ll find yourself in “the zone,” laser-focused, present and in the NOW. This is when the door is kicked wide open for you to make a lasting impact on someone else (especially in the tiniest of moments) … and those electric, hair-raising #GoodFeels are the payoff!
What takes this to a super personal level is How? you get there and What? actions you take along the way. This is what makes your “What’s my Why?” journey as 💯 personalized and unique as your fingerprints.
But it’s all about being in the NOW.
Purpose puts you there. Productivity is the forcefield that keeps you there.
