The On-Purpose Person

I just started reading the book The On-Purpose Person: Making Your Life Make Sense after a friend recommended it. Most of it is commonsense, as expected, but it does a good job of driving home the message that it’s important to be intentional (on-purpose) with your time.

One of the exercises is to map out The 24-Hour-Day Time Budget and allocate hours for the following:

  • Financial/Material
  • Vocational/Career/Work
  • Social/Community
  • Family
  • Physical/Health/Recreational
  • Mental/Intellectual/Emotional
  • Spiritual
  • Other

Once you’ve mapped out what you want to do, it’s important to compare that to what you actually do, and adjust accordingly.

Next, the author writes:

To be on-purpose, we begin with your being (purpose). It sparks your seeing (vision) which you then put into action or doing (mission). This linkage of purpose, vision, and mission is governed by your choosing (values) how to think, act, and respond.

Read the book if you’re working towards more clarity and focus in your life. Everything is straightforward and readily understood in The On-Purpose Person.

What else? What are some more thoughts on The On-Purpose Person?
