Your Current Priorities Show You Your Purpose.

If you're not sure what your purpose is, take a look at your priorities.

What you're doing now is what your purpose is all about.

Not what you say it is or what you want it to be. Your purpose is what you do. It is what you make time for.

Your priorities give away your true purpose.

You can't hide it. There's no excuse for it. What you're doing tells you what your mission is all about.

What you make time for, what you spend money on, how you respond to tragedy -- they showcase your purpose.

It's not good enough to make the excuse that you'll change what you do and who you are when you are in a better situation.

Different circumstances won't change your purpose.

Bad habits and sloppy processes end up hurting you regardless of how much money you have or how much stress you're confronting at the moment.

So it matters that you take time to hone your purpose. To be purposeful in what you do and who you become.

If you're not sure where you want to be, take time to look at your priorities in life. Be brutally honest about your activities and the results that you're getting.

Outcomes don't lie.

You’re not achieving success in the ways that matter to you because there’s a disconnect between what you say and what you do.

Your priorities aren't matching your purpose.

That could be intentional because you're a fraudster -- but probably not. Or you could have a mismatch simply because you've let life distract you from what you know really matters.

It's time for a checkup. Take your pulse.

Do your priorities match your purpose?

  • How do you spend your money?
  • Is kindness and grace something you practice regularly
  • Are you investing in relationships that have long-term impact
  • Is being honest something that you value?
  • What books have you read recently?
  • Is there a skill you are attempting to master right now?

What do your current priorities, tell you your purpose is?
