Journey of Self-Discovery
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could find true meaning and purpose in our life?
What motivates us and excites us to do the work that we do?
The question of Purpose is not only valid for individuals but for organisations too.
Purposeful work unites employees and organisations around a shared mission and inspires people to work better and smarter and bring more meaning to every day.
Organisations must focus on making their business meaningful and purposeful.
Tom Path, author of “Are You Fully Charged” said: “The odds of being completely engaged in your job increases by 250% if you work on meaningful projects each day.”
On individual level what we do and how we make our living takes big share of our time and it defines us in many ways.
I can help you define, articulate, and activate your individual, team, or organisational purpose.
How we direct our attention determines the mental habits we form, the emotions we develop, and the results we experience.
As we become more aware we start to realize that there is a world far larger than just what we understand through our immediate senses.
Harold Kushener once said:
“Think of life as a good book. The further you get into it, the more it begins to make sense.”
Awareness shapes the outer boundary of what is possible.
By experiencing more our circle of awareness expands.
Wouldn’t it be great if all of us are happy and live in harmony with ourselves and our environment?
Happiness is important both for individuals and for organisations.
“Happiness is a perfume you cannot put on others without getting some on yourself”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Finding happiness and living happy life is much easier than most of us would imagine or believe.
Many people, by default, don’t see themselves as creative because they treat it as some mysterious force they don’t possess.
In “Creative Confidence”, David and Tom Kelley say:
“Creativity isn’t some rare gift to be enjoyed by the lucky few – it’s a natural part of human thinking and behavior.”
Within every individual, creativity is a function of three components: expertise, creative-thinking skills, and motivation.
Corporate creativity depends upon the capability to influence those components as well as to develop its “absorptive capacity” – the ability to absorb innovations from outside sources – from a wide range of disciplines, from their users and customers.
We learn to be creative by experimenting, exploring, questioning assumptions, using imagination and synthesizing information – failing in order to learn and collaborating with diverse people who aren’t like us.
Jumping into a creative, fulfilling and meaningful journey, you provide your mind with a chance to recharge and grow, every time.
Creativity is a skill that can be developed and a process that can be managed.
Everyone can learn something from almost anything, and it’s worth developing a mentality that does so. There are thousands of cultures, traditions, and ideologies around the world, and they all have something to teach.
“Learning is definitely not mere imitation or the ability to accumulate and conform to fixed knowledge. Learning is a constant process of discovery and never a concluding one.”
While it’s worth learning from different sources, it’s also worth being independent – by having your own mind and beliefs and building your intellectual confidence.
We don’t get better by doing the same thing one way. We get better by pushing boundaries.
Humans are habit-forming creatures. Make learning a habit. Broaden your horizons. Learn new skill. Practice.
Start with something you can do today or this week, even if you can commit a few minites to it. And tomorrow, do it again. Maybe for a few more minutes. And so on.
Find yourself a mentor and people that you will learn from.
Where would Plato and Aristotle be without Socrates!
“We are made to create. We feel useful when we create. We release our ‘stuckness’ when we create. We reinvent our lives, tell new stories, and rebuild communities when we create. We reclaim our esteem, our muse, and our hope when we create.”
