A couple of years ago, I decided to join our city’s effort of recycling food scraps. The compost supports our local farmers and reduces garbage for the earth.
Every morning, I walk up the hills to the city hall to recycle. It’s about 2000 steps from my home.
This morning, during my walk, I sensed the fresh air on my face, smelled fragrant flowers, and listened to the birds singing. I started to appreciate the power of purpose. If I set a goal to walk 2000 steps every morning, I might have slacked off easily. Since I have a purpose, the morning walk becomes part of a bigger thing.
Purpose drives our daily activities. It gives meaning to our actions.
Do you have a purpose for your daily work?
