Question of the Day January 29, 2012 ~ Purpose In Life

What do you think purpose in life means?

For me, “purpose in life” means something I choose.
For me currently there are many purposes:
Care of my family;
Care for my community;
Care for humanity;
Care for the ecosystems of life on this planet;
Developing and promoting systems for all of the above;
Having as much fun as possible within the above.

For me, the notion of purpose in life as something externally given (something not of my choice) makes no sense.

About Ted Howard NZ

Seems like I might be a cancer survivor. Thinking about the systemic incentives within the world we find ourselves in, and how we might adjust them to provide an environment that supports everyone (no exceptions) with reasonable security, tools, resources and degrees of freedom, and reasonable examples of the natural environment; and that is going to demand responsibility from all of us - see www.tedhowardnz.com/money

    Oh boy howdy, are we ever on the same page here. Many people feel that we “find” our purpose. I feel that we “determine” our purpose.
