Purpose and Strategy: Two by Two

Purpose and Strategy: Two by Two | Leading Choices | Scoop.it

Purpose and strategy. They seem to fit like peanut butter and jelly. Purpose is the jelly, sweetening our appetites for the work to be done. Strategy is the peanut butter, making it all stick together as we do the work.

ThinDifference's insight:

Purpose is not fluff. It is the content of our strategy’s character. It is what makes organizations strong because it inspires people to engage in their work and achieve meaning in what they do. Purpose defines the personality and story of an organization and, in turn, the policies and processes that flow from it.

There's More to Life Than Being Happy

ThinDifference's insight:

Interesting, diverse stats:

 

"At this writing, Gallup also reports that nearly 60 percent all Americans today feel happy without a lot of stress or worry. On the other hand, according to the  Center for Disease Control, about 4 out of 10 Americans have not    discovered a satisfying life purpose. Forty percent either do not think their lives have a clear sense of purpose or are neutral about whether their lives    have purpose. Nearly a quarter of Americans feel neutral or do not have a strong sense of what makes their lives meaningful."

 

Pursuing purpose provides a better foundation on which happiness can be found.... we may be pursing the wrong thing.

Contentment breeds sccess, not the other way round. We all have to make a decision about whether to stop striving for the next level (rank, money, status, etc) and enjoy where we are in the hope (with some research back-up) that success will follow.
