A life of meaning and value is achieved through purposeful action ~ Patricia Ryan Madson

This is a quote from a book called Improv Wisdom, which incidentally was recommended here by Steven Pressfield author of Do The Work and The War of Art.

Who doesn’t want to live a life of meaning and value?

Seeing this quote reminds me that it’s important to:

1. Have a purpose in life

and

2. Do things that matter

As a work at home parent it’s all too easy to lose sight of both of those things when the pressure is on.

You become tunnel visioned and act in a frantic, frenzied way responding to whatever is thrust abruptly into your consciousness.

It feels like you’re working hard, and you are, but after a while you have little to show for your efforts.

What are you doing right now? Are you taking purposeful action?
