Want to quickly get a read on your own sense of purpose; with the power of your own purpose? Take this little quiz from The Power of Full Engagement. Use a scale from 1 to 10 and answer these questions:
1. How excited are you to get to work in the morning? 2. How much do you enjoy what you do for its own sake rather than for what it gets you? 3. How accountable do you hold yourself to a deeply held set of values?
According to the authors, if you score at least 27 "it suggests that you already have a significant sense of purpose to what you do." If you score below 22 "you are more likely going through the motions."
Where are you?
Think about this: "The issue is not so much whether your life is providing you with a sense of meaning as it is whether you are actively using life as a vehicle through which to express your deepest values."
I don’t know about you. I only know about me. And I want my life to be about the things that matter.
