How to Know, Live & Love Your Life Purpose (Part 3 of 4)

3 Ways to Live Your Purpose and Overcome the Resistance

In recent weeks, I have written about my personal purpose story and how we can know the purpose for which we were made. This week, I am addressing the third part of the series, Living our Purpose.

I believe everyone would agree that it is great to know our purpose; however it is a pity when people know it but aren’t living it.

Is this you today?

What Does Productivity Mean to You?

Understanding Productivity vs Effectiveness

This is a guest post from Nick Snapp.  He’s a friend of mine who is a follower of Christ, husband to his wife, Nazach and a proud parent to his 2 (about to be 3) kiddos. Nick helps people use productivity as a tool for exploring purpose! You can follow Nick on Twitter, Facebook and Podcast.

Productivity is a funny thing.

I haven’t found a consistent definition of what it means to “be productive.” In fact, before a recent talk I gave at the University of South Florida, I surveyed 44 college students asking them what being productive meant to them. I received 44 different answers!

Here’s a few:

  • “Making the most of your time.”
  • “Working efficiently.”
  • “Having a list of items to complete, and completing them in a timely manner.”
  • “Getting a ton of stuff done in less time so you have more time to do stuff that’s important to you.”
  • “Utilizing every hour of the day to get something accomplished.”
  • “Doing things that I don’t want to do, but did anyway.”

I love the last one.

It’s no wonder we’re all talking about how to be more productive, yet still confused about what the concept even means!

How can we be or do more of something if we aren’t able to define what it is we’re trying to do?
