Imagine a future, 10 years from now, in which you know nothing of your life’s purpose nor did you take any actions in the key areas of your life to live in accordance with your purpose. What does your life look like? How do you feel? What are you doing? This may feel icky, to say the least. The point is to deepen your understanding of what living a life without purpose is costing you and what it will continue to cost you in the future as each day you deepen existing patterns, and perhaps even find new ways to live without your purpose.

Know that you’ve succeeded in pulling the slingshot back another third of the way and in just one more day you’ll pull back the slingshot, then “Blast off!”
