Seven Purpose Questions

An important element of personal excellence is understanding your purpose.

John Stanko offers these seven questions to help you identify your purpose:

  1. What do you do that brings you the greatest joy?
  2. What are your gifts and talents?
  3. What gives you joy and excites your will?
  4. What would you do with your life if you had all the money you needed?
  5. What do you do that causes you to forget what time it is and to not notice that you're hungry?
  6. What compliments have you heard regularly that surprise you?
  7. What is your life-defining passage of Scripture or wisdom literature?

BOTTOMLINE: "Quality questions lead to a quality life." Take these quality purpose questions and use them to develop and clarify a quality sense of purpose. Then go out, armed with your purpose, to make an impact on your world.
