What’s Your Purpose?

I was having a conversation with one of my colleagues at DU the other day.  He mentioned that many of our students, both undergraduate and graduate, come to us without having a clear idea of what they want in life.  This is especially troubling for graduate students, because there is a lot of time and and expense involved in graduate school.  It’s usually a good idea to know how you aee going to use that experience to move you toward your goals and life purpose.

I was lucky, I figured out what I wanted to do with my life in my early 20’s.  I was working for a consulting company.  We employed a lot of contractors.  These folks worked from their home, coming to us when we had a project that suited their skills.

I knew that this was what I wanted, to run a one person consulting and coaching business.  I figured out that I needed more education and some experience before I could successfully do that.  It took me 14 years, to degrees and several jobs inside companies before I started my business in 1988.  I was living my purpose — and I’m still living it all these years later.

This brings me to my main point.  The earlier you can figure out what you want in your life, the better. This article will help you do just that.  Take a minute to read it, then put it’s advice to work.
