I recorded this episode at South Bank, in Brisbane, on a revoltingly humid day! All the meeting rooms at the State Library were booked so I thought I’d sit outside in the shade – it was VERY HOT! And I had company – a few beautiful Australian Water Dragons.

My little podcasting buddy!

This week I talk about knowing your purpose. When you know your purpose, it’s easier to plan, to set goals and then take relevant action to achieve them. In the past, I’ve found that when my goals are connected to my purpose, I’m far more likely to achieve them.

know your purpose

In this episode I talk about:

  • Simon Sinek Start with why
  • Stephen Covey – begin with the end in mind
  • How knowing our purpose can help us in life
  • The Japanese concept of Ikigai
  • Four questions to help you find your purpose
  • Creating goals

Do you know your purpose? I’d love to know.
