We tend to think that if we align everything we do with what we want to do our results will be better simply because we’re content to be engaged actively in all the tasks.
But it isn’t necessarily so easy…
When we find a deeper sense of purpose, or if you like, a bigger mission which inspires us, we may find success at that level calls for contributing tasks we’d rather not do.
Some lower order obligations flow inevitably from our choice of mission. We need to do them to succeed, like it or not. The sequence of steps on the road isn’t ours to choose. We discover the path more than create it. If we work on a big theme some of the component parts are expected of us whether they sit well with us or not.
Is your ultimate goal compelling enough to carry you through?
