Companies find that creating a Statement of Purpose serves as a compass for their future. As I was turning 60 *, I decided that I needed my own Statement of Purpose.
* Although not in the far, far distant past, not exactly a current event.
My Statement of Purpose
(on the Eve of my 60th Birthday)
I want my life to count. I aspire to reach the highest level of achievement my talents will allow. I seek to know God and, if possible, to know and do His will, as that must be the highest level of achievement.
While I seek this knowledge, I will push the limits of my creativity to bring beauty, laughter, and comfort into the world.
I decide this day to focus on what I can achieve in the days, months, or years I have left. I put myself on notice that time is short and talents fade.
It is time. It is time. It is time.
