Truth and purpose
The more options you have, the more difficult it is to commit to any of them. Embrace your options, but not so much that they prevent you from taking purposeful action.
It’s great to have plenty of resources and capabilities. Yet those capabilities can go to waste if you have no meaningful purpose toward which to apply them.
How do you keep yourself connected to purpose? By being honest, with yourself, with others, with all of life.
Purpose is an expression of truth. Load truth into all you think and speak and do, and you’ll put purpose in your days.
Do more than just assembling the tools and arranging the conditions for success. Achieve actual success and fulfillment by empowering your efforts with honesty and authenticity.
Seek the truth, face the truth, humble yourself in its presence. And make the very most of all your best options, resources, and capabilities.
