See also

Do you have a formal purpose statement for yourself?

A purpose statement can help answer the all important question, why are you working? If they are written with honesty and careful consideration they can help you and you be inspired and stay on track.

Here are my work and personal purpose statements:

Work:
- We help teens and adults answer the question: What was I born to do? And then, make the answer a reality.
- We innovate by melding the worlds of coaching, personal growth, technology and business.

Personal:
- To follow my heart and trust what moves me.

Activity#1:
1. Create a list of 10 reasons why you work now.
2. Create a list of 10 reasons you want to work in the future. (some may be the same as #1)
3. From this list and you own reflection create a one line personal purpose for work.

Activity# 2:
1. What is your personal purpose outside of work?
