How To Connect A Project With Purpose

How will your project help something or someone outside you – your loved ones, your community, the world? Who are you thankful that you’d like to make life more wonderful for?

If your project is just for you and your self-interest you won’t be as strongly motivated. Link your work to benefiting something larger and you’ll have more energy and more reason to stick with it.

After you’ve listed different reasons, pick the big reason. Which of them are most important?


My Example:

I’ll reach more clients. I know how helpful I can be. *

This will add security to my family’s well-being.

I’ll reach more people who will never be clients but will help them.
