Let this blog find you actively engaged in a meaningful life with a sense of deeper purpose in whatever you are doing!
Recently I met many people who are questioning meaning & relevance in their life, their current work, whether they should continue what they are doing or follow something else.
In search of this answer, I found a clue in a book that I am reading: “Prisoners of Our Thoughts: Viktor Frankl's Principles for Discovering Meaning in Life and Work” by Alex Pattakos. (Click here to read first few pages)
Here is a very simple and practical exercise mentioned in this book. It is called “Eulogy Exercise”.
This exercise has a profound effect. It may connect you to the central theme of your life. Do this exercise with a close friend. Include your achievements till date as well as those you will achieve in the future. Before starting this exercise you may declare: “Let my consciousness be transported to the time I pass on from this earth and speak through me now”
This exercise might help you articulate some of the core themes of your life: what defines you and all that ONLY YOU are meant to bring forth in this world. Let me remind you again: You are unique!!
