The Purpose of Living Life Purposefully

Here are some good self-assessment questions:

*  How purposeful are you in getting the sleep you need to function at your best?

*  How purposeful are you in getting the exercise you need to function with maximum energy?

*  How purposeful are you in eating the right foods to sustain your health and well-being?

*  How purposeful are you in organizing your time so that you're spending your highest quality time on your most important priorities?

*  How purposeful are you in cultivating the quality of time with the people who matter most in your life?

*  How purposeful are you in ensuring that, each day, you are accomplishing something meaningful in your life?

Can we really expect to achieve our life's purposes if we are not living our days purposefully?

Can we trade with intention and discipline if we don't live the rest of our lives intentionally?

Everything in life can be approached with intention and purpose or it can be approached mindlessly and routinely.  In carrying out daily activities with self-direction, we strengthen our ability to stay mindful and purposeful for life's greater goals.   

Life is one great gymnasium, but we only develop if we recognize the equipment and conduct our workouts.
