The promise of a pencil

The promise of a pencil

For the last few days, I’ve been listening to a new audio book by Adam Braun called The Promise of a Pencil. Adam traveled the world during college and had a nearly fatal ship ride during a Semester at Sea adventure. During a frightening storm when the large ocean liner he and 650 other students were traveling on was badly damaged, he had a life-affirming knowing that now was not his time to die. He was here on the earth for a purpose.

A year or two later, Adam had a transcendent moment listening to a symphony one night. The name “Pencils of Promise” flashed into his head.

The combination of his knowing he was here for a purpose, combined with this name “Pencils of Promise” led him to his destiny: leading a wildly successful FOR PURPOSE organization that is building a new school every ninety minutes all across the world.

Recently, I had my own life-affirming moment. I awoke from a dream with a feeling of “YES.” Yes, I was doing the work I’m supposed to be doing right now. Yes, I’m living where I’m supposed to be living. There was more to the dream, but my point is made.

Suffice it to say that I awoke feeling so good, so positive, so ON PURPOSE.

How about you, gentle reader? Have you had your own life-affirming moment? A moment where you knew you were in the exact right place, doing your exact right work? Or at least you were on the right path towards your right life?

I’d love it if you’d share your moment with me.

Being on purpose provides a foundation – something to return to when life gets hectic. Being on purpose provides an anchor when the strong winds threaten to blow you over. And being on purpose can provide some extra juice for staying focused on the important.

If you know you’re here for a purpose, yet you’re spinning like a top, overwhelmed, working too much, focusing on the urgent rather than the important, consider scheduling time to Rendezvous with me.

I can help you re-focus, re-energize, and get the right work done that fulfills your purpose, on purpose.

And if you don’t know what your purpose is yet, I’d love to talk to you about that, too. I have an uncanny knack for “knowing” where you’re stuck, blocked, and not “seeing” something important. I’d love to help you find focus and purpose. Because once you do that, everything comes into focus and becomes more fun!

Make some room,
