Fulfilment is found through purposeful action, not in meeting deadlines or having our head buried in our phone. These things distract us from our purpose and keep us entertained, neglecting what is important. I’m yet to meet somebody other than an app developer or a person involved in the tech industry who is truly fulfilled spending hours a day on their mobile device. I don’t intend to berate technology, but highlight how much time is wasted in mindless tasks that prevent us from pursuing purposeful action. I realise many people are scared to death to pursue their purpose, let alone realise they have one. Purpose and purposeful action can be borne out of the same intention that aligns with our core values. Stealing time on a mobile device serves no one other than the manufacturer of the device and the telephone company whose profits we bankroll. We must step out of our comfort zone and discover an intention that moves us in the smallest way. People believe purposeful action is aligned with a greater intent to change the world. It might or might not be. There is only one way to find out; take the first step.
