3D Juggling 440: Destinations

Claire writes: 'On our holiday last week with only 20m visibility in the Dorset fog, we had to hold on to the hope that we would end up in Dorchester. And we did! I had been reading 'Woman on the Edge of a Nervous Breakdown' a hysterical novel by Guardian journalist Lorna Martin. The lead character says "If you don't have a destination, you can never fail to get there, but you will end up drifting along forever."

Look around, and those who know what they are working for tend to be much happier and more fulfilled at work than those who don't. Purpose is really important. In his book 'Path to Purpose', academic Patrick Damon's research supports this. He expands to say that purpose also needs to include other people. Which is what Aristotle said all along: where your talents and the needs of the world collide, there lies your vocation.

Where is yours? Or are you still in the fog?
