I centered my thinking around many conversations I had with amazing educators this past week at a conference around the basic question of:

Who are we?

What is our life purpose?

Time and time again I come back to these thoughts as I think about what is my purpose in the work I do? What is it that Aaron Maurer is trying to achieve with all the endless hours, reading, tinkering, and learning? 

In the past I spent so much time trying to know everything I think I was distracting myself from the powerful question of who I wanted to be and what was the body of work I want to leave behind.

This is probably common for many people because the answer is not clear. The answer is difficult to find. And it is scary to move forward and claim you know your purpose because that leads to being accountable.

As I continue to live and focus on my theme of Essential, I keep centering everything I do to finding my answer. This has helped to change some past habits and realize two key things.

We can’t do it all.

We can’t know it all.

But we can center our thoughts, energy, and skills into a smaller area and really excel in this field.

What is it for you? What is your purpose in the work you do? Can you define it? And if so, then the next part becomes trying to find ways of discovering how successful you are in this purpose.

And if you cannot articulate it, then continue to roll around in the mud until something sticks and you realize what it is you are meant to do.

    My purpose is to gather as much power as I need to leverage it to empower the limited amount of people in my life.

    I am very unsuccessful right now haha.
