One of the assignments in a recent class I am taking required students to write a “rule of life.” The idea behind the assignment was to focus on our purpose for life.
Before considering the connection to leadership, answer the following questions.
Have you ever sat down and written out your purpose of life?
Why are you pursuing the course in life you are pursuing?
What do you want to achieve and get out of life?
Would you be willing to write down your purpose of life?
What implications would exist with having a written purpose for life?
Knowing and reminding ourselves of our purpose of life will continue to keep us focused on the impact of our words and actions.
Having a purpose of life gives us meaning and hope for what the future holds.
A purpose of life changes the way we see God, develop family, and influence others.
At some point I will share my purpose with you, but for now, suffice it to say our purpose should incorporate our understanding of God, his working in our life, and our need to glorify Him.
