The Purpose-Driven Practice – Excerpt from Coaching for Attorneys

Book“Purpose is a guiding principle that will help you understand what is most important in your life and help you make choices in keeping with that importance.  Knowing your purpose will enable you to live all areas of your life with greater meaning, which in turn makes decision-making easier, and results in greater fulfillment overall.  Knowing and living your purpose will assist you in ‘taking a stand’ against other people’s (and your own) drifts.  (See chapter 1.) Having a purpose will also help you cope in a profession in which you are always either winning or losing and where people are not always civil.  Your purpose provides you with a central guidance system, which makes you less likely to be swayed by other people’s agendas or to get off track.”  (Chapter 9, Purpose and Vision)
