People often mistake their work title as an expression of their purpose.
This causes significant difficulties when their titles change, and titles change far more regularly in this age than they did in the past. If one defines his purpose around a particular title, it can be very confusing when he no longer holds that title.
Our purpose in life is much larger than our jobs and even our careers. Purpose is that overarching constant that we seek to fulfill throughout our lives. Yes, we express that purpose in many jobs and these days multiple careers, but the purpose remains the same.
It has been very helpful to me to write out my purpose and to review it regularly. This keeps me focused on what is really important. I am including a copy of my current purpose statement to provide a concrete example.
Do you know your purpose?
If so, would you be willing to share it?
