What Is Your Life’s Purpose?

“We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.”

— Winston Churchill

What is your purpose?

No, I don’t mean what do you do in your job or as a career. What is your purpose in life?

This is one of the biggest questions we, as humans, can ask. What do you want your family and closest friends to be able to say about you in our eulogy? As an early retiree, it is one of my biggest challenges. What do I want to accomplish in Life 2.0?

I’ve been asking myself this question for years now and I’m not sure I have yet to come up with a solid answer. And I think that is ok. Not everyone is going to know. Like kids out of high school though, I think you just have to keep asking yourself, continue to practice introspection and, most importantly, as I wrote in my most recent post, Take Action… keep trying different things.

So, I’d like some help.

If you never again had to work a day in your life to earn money, what would you do? How would you spend your time?

Thanks, in advance, for your suggestions!
