This may not be so obvious for you and it was not clear for me either. The classical confusion that we all make is when we look around or get impressed by others, and we decide on a projection of this, calling it our purpose.
When I work with managers, I often hear their need of having this kind of clarity. However, this is not achievable as simple as you would just set a goal for the next year, it is personal and not always retrievable.
I was writing in a previous article (link to) that you could draw a picture of yourself, and check feelings and what can be seen there, because in that way you can get in touch with things that you respect in yourself.
Asking a question like: ”what is your major struggle right now?” the answer is something like: ”not sure what to DO in the next years, or where I see myself”
So the interference of the DO shows that something in the NOW is maybe not so clear. The best visions that work are by far based in the PRESENT. In other words, checking your current situation can give the foundation for the big plan in the FUTURE.
Another thing is that you can only discover this inside you, not get it from the outside world, so it is related to your own personality.
I know that, traditionally, we used to have goal writers in companies, and that, somehow, creates a pressure to define missions, life purpose etc.
My invitation for you is to look inside, and to know that what you find is enough, because it is unique and representing of who you are.
In this guide you will find your current answers for getting too attached to your past actions or maybe looking too much into your future, becoming obsessed with some potential results.
Understanding reality, moment by moment, is challenging, so I designed some simple tools for you to be comfortable with who you are NOW and to stay PRESENT and alert.
There is one personal request, please make some comments if you enjoy this guide and I will continue to send you more strategies on how to work with peers, support your team members and develop a motivated initiative.
