Pursuing Our Purpose-Part 5: Defining Pursuit as Following and Catching Something Valuable
Now we can move on to addressing the three variations in defining the “pursuing” part of pursuing our purpose, as the third segment of my series on Preventing Procrastination, Prizing Prioritizing, and Pursuing Purpose.
This post is about the first of those three variations in meaning:
**To Pursue: to follow and try to catch or capture (someone or something)
for usually a long distance or time.**
I think this quote is especially relevant for this series. As we follow and try to “capture” our purpose in life, it isn’t something that’s going to happen immediately. It’s an effort that requires one step at a time. Each step forward on our journey brings us that much closer to attaining our goals, and capturing or fulfilling our purpose in life.
I don’t care how much power, brilliance or energy you have;
if you don’t harness it and focus it on a specific target, and hold it there,
you’re never going to accomplish as much as your ability warrants.
So what do you think about this definition as it relates to pursuing our purpose? Can you relate? Are you moving forward toward your goals and purpose in life?
