Read this book if you want to get focused, find your purpose and change your life. Then create a wish list of actions that you want to do on a daily basis. I am a crazy reader, so getting into your Notes is like a trip to the sporting goods store when I was a kid. May 03, James Mccracken rated it it was amazing. The chapters on storytelling strike at the heart of the dilemma most scientists and professionals have, that they are impostors in their own field and are undeserving of happiness and accolades. Trust that you are self reliant. Large estate used to have pacing rooms where the lord would dictate his ideas — studies show you think optimally alongside physical activity.
Part 1: You are the only one that can define it, nobody else can. Any good screenwriter constructs the plot of a movie by starting at the end. With your life purpose in mind, you can do the same Part 2: How To Find your Purpose Start by ruthlessly evaluating your current position: How would a complete stranger describe your life right nowwith no knowledge of your past or emotions? Measure your assets and liabilities, and your strengths and limitations. Then create a wish list of actions that you want to do on a daily basis.
This is your purpose — the day to day reality of your life. What do you want it to look like? To determine this list, look at what you currently enjoy doing, what you lose yourself in, what you do in your free time. Write BIG things, that make you feel alive on the inside Determine your current core priorities.
These are the values and traits you give importance to — things you perceive as good. To do this, write down the personal strengths you are proud of, the traits you admire in others, and the traits that you want to possess. Be ruthlessly honest. Realize that your current core priorities are what got you to where you are today. They will not get you to your purpose. Rewrite your priorities so that they will get you closer to your purpose. Choose words that fill you with hope and energy.
Attach an aggressive short term goal to each of your core priorities. Setting these goals should set your mind racing and fill you with enthusiasm, urgency, and a sense of mild panic. Recognize the stories you tell yourself about your life and rewrite it to be inspiring.
The story you tell yourself becomes reality. To do this, set aside a block of time to be alone and reflect on the times in your life when you felt the most inspired. When did you feel maximally empowered? What were you watching, reading, or doing? From memory, create a giant list of the things that inspire you. What do these things have in common?
Identify at least a dozen words that make you come alive on the inside. Inject these words into your preexisting story in order to create an inspiring new one.
Use them as the backbone of the new story Ask yourself difficult questions enough times and you will eventually find a way to answer them.
How can I get to X?
What is my purpose? What is my story? What are my core priorities? Will this matter a year from now?
What is the most important thing I can do right now? Create a personal slogan. This is the abridged version of your personal philosophy. Find a short phrase or visual representation of your biggest goal and put that in the middle.
Then fan out with representations of your long term goals, then short term goals. It should feel excruciatingly personal. Amplify your belief in the decision to achieve your vision, and validate it repeatedly. No one else is going to save or validate you.
No one else can live your life for you. They can give you rewards and experiences, but feelings of achievement and fulfillment must come from within Story of the meatpacker who got stuck in the meat train after 20 years of work.
