Last August, I issued what I called a Purpose Challenge. The Challenge consisted of taking the Purpose Assessment found on my website, and then committing to address the disciplines in your life that would enable you to increase your score by 15 points. In the last six months, I have written about purpose, goals, time management, creativity and mentoring as means to that score increase. You can review all the Memos I wrote for this Purpose Challenge here.
And now it's time to take the profile again to see how much progress you have made. As you re-take the Assessment, I urge you to give yourself the benefit of the doubt as you respond and not be too hard on yourself. You can find the Assessment here.
This Assessment is not scientifically sophisticated. It is simply a summary of things I have found to be critical components in your PurposeQuest. Since measuring your progress in intangible things like purpose is almost an impossible task, you still need to try and determine how satisfied you are with your current state of affairs.
So that's' it this week. If you did not take the Challenge, then go to the Monday Memo archives and do some reading if you need something to stimulate you this week. And remember, the Monday Memo turns 10 years old next month and I am collecting money for Kenyan orphans and widows to honor the event. You can read about it here.
