Today I was reading an interview of Joel and Victoria Olsteen in Success Magazine. There was a profound quote by Joel Osteen that jumped out at me. Joel says, "If you woke up and God gave you breath to breath, then you've got something else you need to do. Somebody needs what you have. You have an assignment. You have something to offer the world."
As I thought about these words I was struck by a deep sense of purpose for my days. I think often about long-term purpose; what my vision and goals are for the next 6 months, one year or five years but rarely think about my day to day purpose. Recently I have thought about the importance of waking up every morning with purpose. What should I do today? Who should I impact today? Who shoulld I talk to today? Who should I encourage today?
What if we all woke up everyday with a sense of purpose for the next 24 hours. What will my mission be for the next 24 hours? How will I accomplish this mission? I would say that waking up everyday with purpose for the next 24 hours would yeild much more productivity in my life and work. My challenge is to live life on purpose!
