Are you spending or investing your time? Which you do makes a world of difference! During the month of March, our theme in the On-Purpose Planet is Investing.
The Gregorian calendar marks history as BC (Before Christ) and AD (Anno Domini — Latin, meaning “Year of Our Lord,” but commonly referred to as After Death). When you found your 2-word purpose, something similarly dramatic happened on your personal timeline — your life pivoted from BP (Before Purpose) to AP (After Purpose). Your BP self spent time searching for meaning and purpose. Today, your AP Self is positioned to invest your remaining years giving your 2-word purpose expression.
BP to AP is a sharp contrast! Perhaps too striking, even disturbing? Your trial-and-error search for meaning is over; now what?
Your 2-word purpose raises two rapid-sequence TOUGH SHIFT decisions. First, you stand at the AP open doorway where you can more intentionally fulfill your purpose and promise. This adventure, however, carries risks and resistance from people and forces outside you and within you.
Fear not! There’s absolutely nothing to gain staying mired in the old ways of your BP self. When crossing the BP-to-AP threshold, anticipate making rookie mistakes. So what! That’s part of mastering the art of leading in adversity and in stretching for opportunity.
You are not alone on this quest. For decades, my team of On-Purpose Pros and I have guided thousands of people over the BP-to-AP threshold into being On-Purpose (OP) — your second and most enduring TOUGH SHIFT that I’ll address in my Post.
