What Drives You?

Posted on Tuesday, October 26, 2010
I saw an advertisement for something recently that talked about 'what drives you'.  It asked the questions:  "What drives you to... get up early, get across town, meet with someone new, invest in a project, return home at the end of the day".   The answer of course is 'purpose'.  Being ON PURPOSE® in anything is crucial to arriving at the end of 'it' (what ever the particular 'it' may be at the time) and feeling good about the outcomes.

Your purpose may be long reaching - or far reaching.  Perhaps many people, or much time needs to pass for the results to become real.  But at the beginning, the purpose must drive a plan. Some thought must go into making all the parts work, and all the pieces fit together. 

Do you have a plan?

Does your plan have purpose? 

Does your plan have room for flexibility?

Do you know what the variables are? 

Whatever it is that you are working towards, whether it's "getting up early, getting across town, meeting with someone new, investing in a project, or returning home at the end of the day..." if you know the Why (have purpose) then the How will follow, and will often take care of itself.
