3 Key Points

  1. When you’ve achieved your big goals, an empty feeling can follow. How do you find meaning and motivation again? Uncover your true purpose.
  2. Getting all your employees on board with a mission can take some time to fully implement in your company. Tim suggests encouraging your employees to get involved with the purpose finding process to get the fastest (and best) results.
  3. Even though you may discover what your true purpose is, success isn’t guaranteed, but doors may open in a seemingly serendipitous way once you show up and take the action.
