Making Meaning Happen

      "The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why."
               -- Mark Twain

I had an “Aha!” today on the phone with my coach: I do believe I discovered my ‘why.’

It turns out that my purpose is not about the details of what I do, or create. Through dozens of professional and personal projects I've engaged in over the years, I’ve always searched for ways in which I could be most effective. I thought that was my purpose.

But the truth is that what’s really important to me is “making meaning happen.” My purpose is to make life matter -- for myself, my family, my community, and humanity. It's to live a values-driven life, and encourage others to do the same. 

Is that hokey? Maybe so. But I know have a great reason to wake up in the morning, and it makes a difference every day. What’s your reason? Are you on the path to discovering your 'why'? I highly recommend it!
