When did completing tasks and projects become the obsession for success? We make to-do lists of things already completed for the satisfaction of crossing them off. We delve into puzzles and report our success across social media. I think we have gotten uncomfortable with ourselves, and instead rely on these destinations to feed and fuel and keep us going.

What if success was measured by knowing and following our purpose? Living our values? What if we trusted that our outcomes would be best when we lived this way? Well, it’s true. We do know that happier and more fulfilled lives exist when we live through our purpose, which guides us to do anything we choose. Let 2024 be the year you define your purpose. Begin by understanding your core values, in turn growing where you are planted, and sowing seeds that benefit others.
