Issue 91 - 04 | Strategy for Personal Success: Discovering Your Purpose

By Rich Horwath
Published Feb. 22, 2012 11:00 a.m.
“Just as we need strategy for business success, we need to plan for successful lives. Without one, we allow all kinds of forces to push, pull, twist, and turn us into mental and emotional pretzels. Our inability to say ‘no’ pushes us into time-wasting activities; a lack of strategic direction allows us to be pulled down a career path we never wanted; good intentions to volunteer in the community are twisted into negative comments when we’re not able to meet the time commitments; and we’re emotionally turned around when the relationship we let wither finally ends.”
