The idea of ‘synchronicity‘ and ‘flow‘ just seem to get reinforced every day. Last week, Nick led an unbelievable day around STORY and MEANING and PURPOSE.
FAST COMPANY, November 2014 arrived after that with the cover and primary theme/article on FIND YOUR MISSION.
The article was written Robert Safian who is also editor at Fast Company. (This really smart guy was also editor at Fortune and Money and now Fast Company.)
I had just written a quick thought/blog on Work-Life Balance vs. Integration and then I read this quote from the Editor, “I’ve tried to provide a philosophy on practical framework for managing your choices. Life and business can’t be separated anymore (maybe they never really could). Today we all need to appreciate the layered sophisticated interaction (my bold) between the personal and professional in order to make the most of both.”
The article, Find Your Mission, ends up being about an organization and a person figuring out what really is at the core of their being.
It’s a long article but well worth the read.
***One reason this article resonates so much is that it basically provides tremendous reinforcement of our Controlling Insight: IMPACT drives INCOME. Not the other way around. He says it this way, “The more companies like Apple and Chipolte focus on something beyond money, the more money they make.”
