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.
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?
