When we understand our purpose in life we no longer wonder ‘What am I supposed to be doing?’
A key question I always ask my clients is ‘What are you doing when time flies?’ In other words, when do you feel fully absorbed? (in a good way!), when time flies we can easily forget to look at the clock and forget we are hungry.
Allow yourself to become sensitive to the subtle messages from within, and become very good at listening to your ‘inner voice.’ What is going on around you when time flies? What kind of environment are you in? What type of person are you with, and so on?
The nitty gritty is, when time flies for us it is often because we feel fully aligned with what we are doing, we feel well, we feel fully absorbed in a healthy way and like the feeling. So when do you get this feeling? Keep notes for yourself of such occasions and begin to uncover what your unique contribution is meant to be.
