All of us need a sense of purpose, a reason to apply our energy and passion to something that matters.

I work hard to stay focused on what really matters, but I can’t deny that I often get distracted, leading to a lot of open Skype chat windows, email drafts, and an incomplete or less than impressive outcome for the things that matter most. Except, of course, when it comes to my dog -- my sense of canine purpose is never compromised.
