My daily intentionally actions are my basic needs. I use the bathroom, wash my face, brush my teeth, and eat. If nothing else, I can always count on me doing these. The one thing I do often that is tied to my daily purpose is rest. I can not function properly, efficiently or effectively if I am tired. I make sure I get at least 8hrs of sleep every night and if I have to take a nap sometime during the day I will so that I can complete what I need to.

Chevon, thanks for mentioning how vital rest and sleep are. I define rest as taking a break from mental and physical work while sleep is the unconscious state we engage in where cells get repaired. I need to develop a habit of getting more of both without sacrificing family time when I get home from the job. Can you share any advice?

My daily intentional actions to contribute towards my identified purpose is to start the day early and give thanks for a new day. Then meditate. Then read, listen or research something new to learn everyday. Making use of the time given each day to learn and grow.

GM, this one is not easy for me, but I think it would be connecting with people. Part of my purpose in life is bringing people together. I reach out to coworkers * via Teams) , family members or senior citizens. I always feel better after.

Today’s question stumped me for a minute because people are creatures of habit. Most of my actions are routine so I don’t really think about them. Hence the query, are my habitual acts intentional (i.e., conscious, preplanned, and calculated)? Ultimately, I think so and that doesn’t mean that my purpose in life is meaningless or mundane because the following habitual actions are very important and exciting:
•Daily prayer and Bible study
•Greeting others warmly
•Encouraging others
•Teaching and learning
•Cleaning myself and my surroundings

Most of the actions I take are intentional and not spur of the moment or emotional based actions. For example, everyday, I intentionally place my water and vitamins in front of my alarm so the next day I drink water first thing and take my vitamins. Making my environment easier to do tasks is a big part of being intentional for me.

Right now, most of my day is tied to being successful in school. That is really important, because as I begin to sort out my purpose I think the success of my education will be contributing to that success too.

That’s a great point Ally! School is such a big part of my life that it has become so routine that doesn’t feel intentional anymore, when it is very intentional.

I feel these past few days my daily actions have not been very intentional. But one thing I need to start doing more often is scheduling my day the night before.

Most of my daily actions have an intention to help me get better at something. For example, what i’m doing with food and water is to help me with basketball and general health. One thing i do often is try to help out my friends with anything they’re struggling with like school work.

A lot of my actions are now intentional because I have a focus in place that’s centered around humility. I enjoy just being a help to others who are trying to be better everyday. I enjoy when others have personal success because I know it was a shift in their prospective which lead to the answers they were looking for. If I helped great but if not, I get to experience their growth and development alongside them and that’s an amazing and fun ride . In order for me to get to this point in life I have to say that daily prayer and studying scripture have been the catalyst behind that.

Blessings! My purpose in life is to mentor, uplift, elevate and guide our student athletes. This stems from watching my beautiful mother, who is 96 years young, have an in home day care all of my childhood. She took care of so many children which allowed parents/guardians to work and provide for their families. What made her so unique was her transparency. She gave the children life skills and played the role of therapist for couples and single parents that enjoyed her insight.

Daily, I check in with my players, past and present, to make sure they know they have my support and to listen to them. Whatever they are going through I want them to know there’s love and support.

I starr my day intentionally everyday
I read my Bible daily 98 % on the time before I get out of bed
I love what I do for a living but I don’t alway love my job. A bad day a work doesn’t change my perspective on what I do or how I feel about what I am doing. I still love it the next day or even parts of the same bad day.
I try to excercise 5 days out of each week . Sometimes it’s more sometimes a little less.
I am more intentional about what I eat and my self care

I support someone daily in what ever way I can .

I’m not as intentional with my daily actions as I’d like to be. I struggle to stay motivated. I start then stop when the schedule or plan shifts in ways I wasn’t expecting. I get thrown out of routine and struggle to make a new routine.

Something that I do every day that is a part of my purpose is engage with my kids. I look them in the eye and talk to them, play with them, feed them, train them. At times it feels so insignificant and I wonder if I’m wasting my time by playing with them or just engaging with them instead of doing things around the house or getting work done.

I find that when I stop and see how much my kids have grown in a short amount of time, I am reminded that this time I have with them is so short and there are significant things that I want to do to help lay a solid foundation for their life. That helps me to stay grounded and remember that, although the day in and day out may feel like I’m not doing “work”, I am.

On most days I try to do something connected to my purpose. Growing my knowledge, or just learning more about others. I can’t say it’s daily.

Each day I read something, listen to something or process with someone to gain clarity on my next step. I want to keep moving forward and sometimes that means standing still and being clear in my heart and mind.
