Why is having a purpose important?

Without a purpose, life is motion without meaning, activity without direction and events without reason. Without a purpose life is trivial, petty, and pointless.”

– Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life

Purpose provides meaning, energy, and the motivation to get out of bed every morning. It addresses the fundamental question of ‘Why do you exist?’ This ‘why’ shapes your actions and behaviour, defining your identity and destination when aligned with it. Having a purpose is immensely important.

In essence, a purpose gives direction, helps decision-making, fuels your energy and motivation, infuses your life with meaning, and forms your identity. It contributes to inner joy, peace, and fulfilment. These are compelling reasons to invest time in discovering your passion, values, and purpose.
