Pursuing Our Purpose-Part 1: Introduction and Definition
Here we go, back from taking a day off (tackling some priorities!) and moving on to the third and final section of the series on Preventing Procrastination, Prizing Prioritizing, and Pursuing Purpose! Following a brief summary of the past posts, this post will be an introduction to:
**Pursuing Our Purpose**
So first, to summarize – and to serve as a “catch up” opportunity for those who may just be joining in on reading this series – here are the topics and posts covered so far:
Making Up for Lost Time – My re-introduction to this series, Preventing Procrastination, Prizing Prioritizing, and Pursuing Purpose.
Procrastination Is a Barrier and Lack of Self-Control – Procrastination often prevents us from accomplishing goals, and it requires self-control to do or NOT do something.
Procrastination is Being Unwilling to Finish What You Started – Many times, there’s some combination of unwillingness, inability, or simply being overwhelmed that cause us to procrastinate and not complete things we started.
Procrastination Interferes with Fulfilling Our Potential – The more we procrastinate, the longer we put off reaching our goals and being all we are meant to be.
Dangers of Procrastination -Anxiety, fear, and worry over things we put off doing can lead to physical illness and mental distress.
Procrastination as a Stronghold – If procrastination seems impossible to overcome, it might be a stronghold or mental fortress in our lives.
Moving On to Prioritizing Priorities – Once we achieve some victory over procrastination, we can begin working on prioritizing our priorities.
Balancing Our Priorities – Balance is the key to life – and that means we even need to balance our priorities.
Establishing Our Priorities – After we prioritize and balance our priorities, we then need to work on establishing our priorities.
Tackling Our Priorities – Now that we have established our priorities, we need to tackle them – plan our work and then work our plan to accomplish our goals.
So in the next post, I’ll begin discussing purpose based on the first definition of its reason, aim, or intention.
“If you don’t decide what your life is about,
it defaults to what you spend your days doing.”
Thanks to all those who have read and commented on these posts so far. I appreciate your time and your thoughts. So have you followed the whole series so far? A writer friend suggested I publish the entire series, once I’ve completed it, as an ebook. Is that something you might be interested in purchasing for a reasonable price?
