Why do we do what we do? The answers can vary from habit to tradition to comfort to ease to socially acceptable to randomness. Throughout the day, we think and act with some of our thoughts and actions having direction while behaviors are merely reactions to life around us. Purpose gives us direction for our thoughts and actions. When we have a purpose, we are more likely to focus our energies in a desired direction. Those who take the time to find out their purpose in life or the the purposes that have value are the people who make a difference in their own life and the lives of those around them.
