How do we define the two types of purposeful living?
Your life purpose
This is the sense you have of life having meaning. The belief that you matter. The knowledge of your strengths, dreams and goals.
This is the deeper meaning of your life. Your love for your children. Your connection to your spouse or partner. The desire you have to set goals for work and family life so you can create activities to achieve those goals.
Your life purpose is defined and created by:
- Your innate morals and your cultural norms around how to treat other people and how to behave
- Your personal values and what is important to you
- Your character strengths and personality
- The needs your loved ones have and your desire and ability to meet their needs for love and support
Your daily purpose
This is the meaning and value you attach to your daily, and often mundane or repetitive tasks.
The life purpose allows you to treat your tasks with importance because the daily tasks are linked to your morals, values and goals.
When you attach meaning to your repetitive tasks and responsibilities, you do them with excellence (not perfection).
You feel joy and satisfaction in your day as you approach jobs, rest and social time with ease and peace.
