Ericast 262 - "Providing" isn't Purpose

"My purpose is to provide for my family!"  That sounds good.  But I'm not sure it's right. Intrigued?  Here's your show.

Yes, I'm way behind each week, but I'm putting this in last week's queue, under-the-wire. Hang in there with me!

So....  What's my "purpose"?  Here's a quote:  "My purpose isn't to provide for my family. Insurance can do that."

(That was stolen from someone.  I hope you can tell me who!)

Here's the point: What are you uniquely qualified or positioned to do?

And... How do you evaluate that?

Could you just as easily say, "My purpose isn't to be a role model for my kids; the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization can do that!"

Sure, the question/framework isn't perfect.  But it's useful to break out of the mold.

By the way, I have an Evernote process.  But it failed me here.  I felt bad about this kind of thing until P. Desmond Adams said the same thing happened to him.  So, nobody's note-taking or memory is perfect.  Moving on...
