The greatest value I perpetually gain from the book is the growing sense of profound identity that we all seek. Only by discovering my reason for being here, or, my purpose, did I harness my profound identity. I thank God for this, for I have lived almost 1/2 of my life without clarity about my profound self. I had too much practice affirming my mediocre self to notice.
I gained distinction in my life between purpose, vision, mission, and values. The author masterfully illustrates the distinctions and linkages between them. I learned that my life was truly off-purpose resulting in feelings of hopelessness, anxiety, fear, and meaninglessness.Read more ›
By the time I had completed the first half of the book my way of thinking had changed. I completed the exercises as I read the book.
You begin by listing your goals. Then you decide which is more important and finally which is MOST important. It seems so simple yet the way the author teaches you to do this gave me greater success than other methods.
I was really surprised to find what my most desired goal was. I thought it was something else. But by following the exercises I realized a I had a strong desire to accomplish another goal I never realized was the most important to me. Next you work towards accomplishing your goal.
McCarthy uses the image of a light switch. If you are switched on you are working towards your goals. Conversely if you are not you are not ON PURPOSE.
Within days I was accomplishing tasks to help me achieve many of my goals! An excellent book and most highly recommended!
His inspiring story is entertaining, enlightening, educational, though-provoking and profound.
The On-Purpose Person is a must-read for anyone who cares about things that matter who want to make a difference.
I remember a family member, a therapist, laughing at me when I was 22 and setting my goals for life. It wasn't but a few years later when I quickly met most of my life goals, probably due to being focused.
Now we are much older and that family member appears to be frittering away her life, involving herself in a bunch of trivial pursuits. Another family member lives to eat in front of her television.
The lives of these two family members are depressing to me. I want something better for the thirty years I have left to live and I don't want to die with regrets.
Kevin McCarthy's book presents a strategy for determining and prioritizing objectives relating to every aspect of life and for establishing purpose, vision, missions and values. I have my own methodology for life planning, but I'm going to use the one presented in this book and supplement it with mine.
