On Sunday, June 19, I’ll kick off a new multi-part series that tackles what is perhaps the biggest issue in personal development — your overall philosophy of life and what you believe is the meaning of life itself. Here’s the basic outline:
Sunday: Intro. Why this question even matters. My quest for meaning/truth. How my spiritual/religious beliefs evolved over the past 17 years and how they affect my results today.
Monday: What’s the overall goal of life? Aristotle’s answer (and still one of the most popular): happiness. My answer and why I disagree with Aristotle.
Tuesday: How to discover your purpose. Two different approaches: emotional and logical. Blending your emotional and intellectual intelligences to achieve congruency: internal happiness AND external results.
Wednesday: How to manifest your purpose by turning it into goals, projects, and actions. Moving from thinking to doing.
Thursday: Transitioning (going from where you are now to where you want to end up). The role of clarity.
Friday: Wrap-up, clarifications based on comments, questions.
