Purpose

Understanding our ability to make a difference in the world, at work, school, or for a team or community, leads to a fuller, finer sense of purpose and increases our sense of happiness. Having a sense of purpose involves a combination of living according to one’s values and goals and striving to make a positive difference beyond self-interest. Finding purpose requires dedicated commitment, personal meaningfulness, goal directedness, and a vision larger than one’s self. There are many paths to identification and many start with the “why”; providing context and direction.
