A Purpose

“A purpose is the eternal condition for success”.

That is the quote that sits on the front flap of the pictures in my wallet. The source? A fortune cookie I consumed many years ago. The quote stuck with me though, and I figured that I might as well save it if I found it to be that thought provoking. I couldn’t tell you exactly how many years ago I ran into it, or how many other duplicate quotes exist that convey the same message. The brevity of it is what made it a keeper. It’s hard to stick to anything without a strong sense of purpose attached to it. Call it whatever you like…conviction, dedication, zeal…you want to do well at something? Find a way to make it relevant to yourself, and get some skin in the game.
