3 Convergence Points of Purpose and Path

By seeing the points where your life purpose and your life path converge, you can make better decisions, avoid wasting time and have greater focus on what really matters in growing your soul-driven business.

1. See the point where purpose and path come together.

Your path may trained you so you can do many things (clean your house, buy groceries, balance your checkbook and do your taxes). BUT, just because you CAN do these things doesn’t mean that you should anymore. If you find that your time gets sucked away, or, in the extreme, you feel drained by your life, look at what you’re doing that you don’t need to or shouldn’t be doing anymore. Somewhere in the world, there is someone else who enjoys making the world a cleaner place, loves to run errands and lives to make the numbers work. As someone else does those things, you are freed up to do what only you can do…you have more time on your path to live your life purpose.

2. Pay attention to where your time goes throughout the day.

Assess how you are spending your precious time throughout the day. Time is the one commodity we can never get more of…our clock is ticking from the day we are born. Notice if your day disappears in trivia or projects or things that make you want to have someone else’s life; if in a week’s time, you find that five hours or more is spent doing something that someone else could do, and probably better, that’s a sure place to start delegating. Be present in the time of your life so you can spend it how you want to, doing what expresses your unique purpose and makes you happy.

3. Look at the bigger picture.

Consider what it is that you want to accomplish in the next 30 days, and then look at what could be between you and your goal(s). If there is anything between you and your goal that can be handled by someone else, offload it immediately. If the first thing you think of is “I can’t afford to hire someone”, that’s a temporary condition. Get creative and find ways to barter, pay over time, do it another way, or simply release doing it at all to help you stay focused on what moves you toward your bigger goal.
