Clarity is not often tackled as a topic. Surprising really, given that you can’t achieve anything of any value without it.
Doing the hard work of clarity helps you find your purpose – why you do what you do for whom.
Carolyn Tate, founder of The Slow School of Business is convinced that we should only be in business to purposefully make, and leave, the world a better place.
In the video to the right, the first in the webinar series, Clarity, Through A Glass Brightly, you’ll hear Carolyn make some powerful and profound points to back up her contention.
Carolyn’s four steps to get clarity of purpose
LOOK WIDE AND DIG DEEP
Every day, actively start taking in and doing things you wouldn’t normally do. This is filling up your learning cup. Commit to half an hour a day as an acknowledgement that you are on a purposeful journey.
FILTER OUT EVERYTHING THAT DOESN’T CONTRIBUTE TO THIS JOURNEY
Be conscious of what and who you surround yourself with. Make an inventory of who or what is not serving you in terms of your journey toward purpose.
FIND YOUR TOOL
For example, journalling (inspired by the Julia Cameron’s book, The Artist’s Way, doing three pages of free-form, hand written journalling). This is a personal journey, so it could be meditation or prayer, or walking in nature.
WHY DO YOU WANT TO GO ON THIS JOURNEY?
Is this just for a personal purpose? Or is it bigger than you? Find a reason for going on this purposeful journey and as you do always return to this inspiration.
From Sandy: My purpose is to work with business owners one on one to get clear on their intention for being online. Then they can define their purpose, their business principles, and create an online presence which allows them to communicate coherently and with purpose to build their community.
