In the last year, my new journey has opened up many possibilities and opportunities for me to learn and explore. This has allowed me to learn new skills and participates in projects I would not have anticipated. One example is in my recent work with The Third Bucket. The Third Bucket is a Christian parable to encourage business owners to give. The need to visually communicate the process described in the book, was important.

I decided to hold onto the last book I read. Something about it was comforting to have it in my possession.
Scanning the room, I quickly realized the room was round. The bookshelf wrapped around the left side of the room to a door straight ahead. On the right side of the door was a wall with writing all over. Phrases, which mostly seemed to revolve around the word why, streamed across the wall in different sizes and colors.
What is Mission?
Mission is our how.
It moves us forward. It is how we will travel from our starting point to our finish line.
How we live out our purpose and arrive at our vision is another way to look at mission.
There are many ways to achieve our desired result and arrive at our destination. When we travel to another city, there are multiple vehicles and routes we can take to get there. Each route is a potential mission and each has its strengths and weaknesses.
Which way will we take to get there?
What is purpose?
Purpose is our why.
It is what we believe and it pushes us forward.
Purpose provides the energy and excitement to start an idea we have discovered.
Purpose is why we get up in the morning instead of staying in bed. It is why we exist and why we live. It illuminates the meaning of our lives. When all else fails and we have lived from our purpose, we have succeeded.
Is there an idea you have thought about doing but have yet to start? A business, a book, a relationship?
