must have a practical purpose or else what's the point? This is my basic
philosophy at any rate. Others may choose a different point of view and that is
perfectly fine with me.
The trouble that I see is that all too often we pursue business growth,
personal growth, and, even more often, spiritual growth without any kind of
practical purpose in mind - with the result that we so rarely achieve anything
of real long-term significance for our efforts.
Why is this and what can we do about it?
There are two reasons I see at the root of this issue. First, and foremost,
we ourselves have to make the decision that we will get something useful out of
the various experiences that we have as well as the training and education that
we engage in over the years.
Part of that decision must also include a notion of what we would find useful
- what is it we want to get out of our experiences and our education.
Clarity of why we want these results can be particularly helpful in steering us
away from trouble in the form of unintended consequences.
Secondly, it's important to choose the training, education, and experiences
in our lives that maximize the results that we have decided we truly want.
Education for the sake of education is rarely part of the equation. Your
approach and the approach of the people whose expertise you seek must revolve
around a mutual understanding of what you want to get out of it. Warm and fuzzy
just won't cut it for you, so why settle for it?
If you have ever sat in a seminar, a business meeting or anywhere else
thinking that it is a waste of your time, then you're experiencing at least one
of these two root causes to lack of practical purpose. Fortunately, there is
something you can do about it. In fact, you can do at least three things about
- Align yourself with people also concerned with practical results;
challenge each other to name and strive for those results.
- Seek out education that puts practical purpose at the forefront and
aligns with the results that you care about.
- When the first two ideas aren't enough, look for the practical purpose
yourself. With practice, you'll find that it's always there, even with the
most "warm and fuzzy" interactions.
How can I help?
Those who know me understand that I am one of those who remains absolutely
committed to practical results. This makes plenty of sense in the business
world, where I do much of my consulting. It may seem less obvious that I am
equally committed to a sense of practical purpose in personal and even spiritual
growth as well.
I design all of my workshops to have some practical purpose. My design work
invariably includes a component of cooperation with my clients to ensure that
the purpose we are driving toward is in alignment with their needs.
For my coaching clients, I help them re-orient themselves toward actively
seeking and creating practical purpose in their lives and their work. I often
help them to find, attain, and sustain the results that they want from all
their training and life experiences, whether or not that was part of the
What will seeking Practical Purpose do for you?
Exactly what driving toward practical purpose will do for you is tough for me
to say - you'll have to decide for yourself what you want it to do for you and
together we can go create that. In the meantime I can tell you what it has done
for me and for the clients who have worked with me in the past:
- Feel more fulfilled in life and work
- Become more effective in the workplace
- Become more efficient with time management
- Increased revenue/income
- More joy in work / happier employees
- More effective and reliable employees
- Greater sense of control / less fear or concern over lack of control
- Reduced stress
- Novel and more effective solutions to old problems
- Moving from "stuck" to "increased possibilities"
- Moving from "too many choices" to "taking real action on a sound choice"
Are these things - or something like them - along the lines of what you want?
If so, you deserve to work with a professional capable of and committed to
helping you achieve them. While the processes I use may not always be linear in
nature, they are always logically creative - meaning that any creativity
I call on must also have a practical purpose.
If you are already getting all the results that you want in your work and
your life and you're happy with those results, then you absolutely do not need
me. If you're not satisfied with the results you're currently getting,
then by definition, something has to change.
Call, email, fax or phone. The method you use to reach me doesn't matter -
just know that something different can only happen if you do something
Know too, that you can only attain the results you want if you are clear
about them and partner with a professional who will help you drive toward those
results with a strong sense of purpose. It usually takes only a brief
conversation for us both to know if I can help.
After all - what good is it to be a spiritual master if you can't find a
decent parking place?
