How to Prioritize Your Purpose
How to Prioritize Your Purpose
What's your purpose? Why do you get out of bed in the morning? What drives you? It's a question that can seem daunting, but it's also one that holds the key to a life rich in meaning. Prioritizing your purpose and doing purposeful work is your responsibility. No one is coming to do it for you. On this episode, Paul responds to @Lanaskitten on Twitter. She writes: "I’m not jealous of rich people bc of the things they have, I’m jealous of rich people because they get to pursue their passions in life without having to work a grueling 40+ hours a week job literally just to get by.  my dream is to work in the film/TV industry (behind the cameras so screenwriting and directing) but that’s never gonna happen bc it’s not like I have connections or the money to produce my own film and I need to focus on a realistic long-term career goal:/ I do write as a hobby but it’s hard when you work a job where you’re on your feet all day and will be even harder once I start studying again (to go into a field which is achievable-I’m still interested in but obviously not as passionate about as film and fashion and writing).  obviously you can do stuff that you genuinely enjoy on the side, and I spend most of my free time writing and editing stuff, but as is the case with most other creative industries, it’s very hard to get your foot in the door w/o connections and having time and recourses to attempt to do this is a luxury. It is naive to believe otherwise." Lana is right. If you believe it’s never going to happen, it’s a near certainty you’re right. Why not try anyway? Give it your best shot. Increase your odds from 0 that you can achieve your dream. We prioritize the things we give our attention to. And your purpose should be at the top of that list. You're worth it. Don't just go through the motions; create a life that reflects your values, passions, and aspirations. It's worth the time and effort it takes to uncover your purpose, define it, and live it. And by taking that next simple step to prioritize your purpose, you're setting the stage for a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
