Intent of the Day: Purpose in Work


Today our intent is inspired by our desire NOT to switch into autopilot when we walk in the doors of our offices. We want to be present for every meeting, memo and email that comes in so that we can prioritize and vision be infused in all we do. If we’re going to move with intention, it is going to be because we allow purpose to be part of our working hours.

  • This article about finding your purpose at work no matter what your job.
    Purpose is not just reserved for those fighting fires and curing cancer. While those careers may have an obvious purpose, it does not mean that there is any less value in a homemaker, a kindergarten teacher or a trash collector showing up in their roles. Do not discredit your position or your place of work. Instead find the purpose (large or small) for all you do. Maybe it’s only for a season. Maybe it’s for you to learn a bigger lesson. The truth is there is probably plenty of purpose in it. Who will find it if not you?
