Finding meaning

Happy Friday everyone!

This week has been all about Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s book Flow, and I have had so many new insights from the ideas in this book.

Today, I want to focus on probably the most important thing that Mihaly discusses: meaning. He talks about how when we create a meaning for our lives, we are better able to increase flow. Creating meaning is a way to order our consciousness. It involves devoting every moment of our lives to something larger than ourselves.

live a meaningful life

When we live our life for higher purpose, flow follows naturally.

This has had my reflecting on myself, and I have been asking myself what my own higher purpose is. Professionally, I am devoted to redesigning education. I am passionate about using life coaching and positive psychology concepts to transform the way we educate people. This is what helps me order my life professionally.

On a more personal level, I have still been trying to crystalize exactly what my higher purpose is. Today, I thought about how my personal meaning is to be present in the moment, but this is still a work in progress. As I work out my own personal meaning, I want you to think about what your higher purpose is.

Personal or professional, what greater purpose and meaning are you living your life for?
