Why a purpose is important:
Finding a “definite major purpose” is crucial if you want to be successful in life. Too many people are drifting through life without any direction and plan what they want to achieve. Unfortunately too many end up living a life of regret.
The whole concept of finding your “purpose of life” might sound stupid, strange or crazy. But having a “definite major purpose” doesn’t mean you should find the meaning of life today.
Life is dynamic and so should be your goals. It is actually good if your interests are changing over the time because it shows that you are growing and progressing. But all your goals have to support your bigger “mission” and let you move toward it day by day.
The journey is the goal
You have to think about life like a road trip. Your final destination is your big “mission” and all the roads that bring you there are your strategies that you set up in order to reach your smaller “milestones”.
Your strategies and your milestones can change over time, as much as the streets and little cities can change during your trip. If one street is not working out for you, you change direction but still keep your final destination in mind.
