The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others. – Albert Schweitzer
Have you ever been to gatherings only to find it boring? Mindless talking about non-sensical stuff? And sometimes ended in a fight?
What if you could do better? What if you could orient it to the outcome that you want?
It all begins with the end in mind.
What is it that you want to achieve? What is your end goal?
Taking the gathering as an example.
Do you want it to be a happy gathering? Do you want to have the time of your life?
Do you want it to be exhilarating? Like a roller-coaster?
Do you want it as an avenue to catch up on each other’s life? To talk about the recent activities?
Make it a habit of doing things with a purpose. Have an end goal.
It doesn’t mean that you are being unethical. As if you are going out with a friend, just because there is an advantage for you.
No, it doesn’t work that way.
Having a purpose doesn’t mean you are all-in for benefits that you are going to reap all by yourself. Having a purpose means to spend the time meaningful. To make the full use of the activities that you are doing, at that very moment of time.
By knowing what you want, you can change the flow of the gathering. And you can change the outcome from it.
Have a purpose of what is it that you want to achieve.
