But living an unconventional life is not easy. There is a great deal of hard work and failure on this journey. But if you are committed to intentionally growing and becoming the person you want to be, amazing things will happen.
So how do you begin to make the transformation to living a life of purpose? It will first require you to answer one very important question -- "What do you really want to get out of your life?"
The Era of Reactionary Workflow is a real problem for creative people, teams, and businesses. Being reactive to the world's demands significantly decreases the value of work a creative can produce. The focus block method does not solve the problem, but it can be used to shield against the constant demands of the world.
Unintentional growth does little in the way of allowing you to tap into that primordial entrepreneurial spirit. It must be the mindset of every seasoned professional or recent graduate that personal growth must be intentional.
As human beings, we spend our first 2 decades intentionally growing our skills. Unfortunately, for many of us that growth stops after we enter the workplace. Sure, there is the occasional company training or learning something from a co-worker but there is no continuous personal growth.

The 2 most important questions you can ask yourself are:
1. What do I want to get out of my life?
2. What can I offer the World in return for getting the life I want?
What are your thoughts?

I used to day-dream about my future. I remember flipping through National Geographic magazines. I would fantasize about being the amazing travel writer who brought those stories to life.
Unfortunately, life did not care much for my dreams. So I did what was expected: I graduated, I got a job, I got married. I started a family and bought a house. I was living the "American Dream?" So why was I unhappy with my success?
Unclear on why I was unhappy I asked myself these two very important questions:
- What do I want to get out of my life?
- What can I offer the World in return for getting the life I want?
After some deliberation, I realized I was not unhappy with my success. I was unhappy because I was successful at the wrong things. Worse I was giving more value to my work than my family and my forgotten dreams.
So I spent a few days answering these two very important -- carefully and completely. Answering these questions gave more clarity on setting goals that really mattered to me. The questions also allowed me to make a better plan, in the pursuit of my dreams.
