Living On Purpose

Anais Nin said, ‘We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are.’  Perspective matters. Your perspective on life will determine:

  • how you spend your time
  • how you spend your money
  • how you treat the people in your life

From The Purpose Driven Life

Our perspective is a derivative of the gifts we are born with, the values instilled in us by our parents and our culture and the choices we make about the life we want to live.

According to TPDL, if we value endurance, we see life as a marathon and set out to accomplish a few long term goals. If we value speed, we see life as a race and we’re on a hurry most of the time – we probably flood our calendars with many short-term projects. Both types can bring value to a group.

If we truly value diversity of thought and the wisdom that comes from shared opinions, there can be no place for ‘my perspective is better than yours’. 

There are marathons and ultra marathons for endurance runners, and the 100 m dash for the sprinters among us. Every class of runner deserves the chance to lace up their running shoes and run.
