The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.

Mark Twain

We’ve been told that we should pursue our purpose.

But what if you don’t know what your purpose is?

I had dinner with an old friend last night to celebrate her newly acquired PhD. I’m proud of her, it’s been a long time coming!

This is an exciting time for her, but now what? Now that it’s done she wonders what she should do next; realizing she is no longer happy in her current job.

A job that I once had came up in the conversation. It was my first position after having left a career I had loved. I soon knew that this new position wasn’t the job for me. But having signed a contract I stayed for a year, all the while learning important skills I would need when I launched The Other Bottom Line. And I loved the work I did with my consultancy, all of it, except the marketing of myself!

I guess sometimes knowing what you don’t want is the beginning of understanding what you really want.
