Stop searching for purpose. Build it.

We're living through a crisis of purpose. Surveys indicate that people feel less and less connected to the meaning of their work. Individuals everywhere are asking, How can I find my purpose?

   Purpose is a passion for what you do. Approach every job, every action with passion and purpose.
I have read John Coleman's other books and he has always taught me how to apply what I have learned in life. His new album, Crafting Your Purpose, is his most ambitious yet. No one tells a story like John, and he has a very varied collection of relationships with happy people in many varied vocations. Passion for life has clearly shown in these many real life stories. But first, find your passion and embrace each opportunity. Very uplifting, honest and I recommend it to anyone. Whether you are still searching or want to expand your mission, we have the right people for the job.
   Interesting and informative!
It was a great read, and I had a lot of interest in the second book. It gave me so much to think about when I was deciding how I would use my time. It's great to hear that people are saying it's great to work with Burt Flickinger.
   If You Would Like To Have A Meaningful Life, Read This!
A book on purpose, "Purpose" by Douglas Coleman is a useful and refreshing read. With this book, Blair turns the topic of finding your purpose and turns it on its head, offering readers agency in the process of making their lives meaningful. It's clear and compelling writing, with great storytelling, said Dr. Goin. This is by far the best video game I have ever played.
   Practical and principled guide to increasing purpose
I thoroughly enjoyed this practical book, which is also filled with principles to apply across many spheres of life, Morgenthau said. John's examples were compelling, widening my imagination and the sidebars with exercises were immensely helpful.
   Practical guidance from a caring coach
The best career transitions are guided by an individual's own sense of purpose, he said. Before you know it, you must determine your purpose. In his book, "Crafting Your Purpose," John Coleman shows how to craft a plan that works. For most of us, purpose is not found. He added that the artists must craft their purpose into the work. The book, "The Power of Now," provides step-by-step instructions on how to use the new technology. The consultants help you identify what makes you fulfilled and how to craft a role for your purpose in life. The book also offers great tips on finding a mentor and deciding when to change jobs. John is writing it clear and personal, McCartney said. Simply put, you can read the entire book in an afternoon, or digestible chapter-by-chapter bites. The book is an authentic and heartfelt conversation with a caring and experienced coach.
   A great book on an important and timely topic
The book is great. In The second part of the book, John Coleman breaks down the myths of what a purpose is and is not. Through this book, he offers practical and tested methods to building one's purpose as part of a life journey. Or use the guidance of a professional counselor to reframe the question of purpose. The focus on service and relationships made the most sense, he said. Each vignette shows how the purpose can be created in any situation. The key is to reframe the question from finding a purpose to creating it. Even when we think we know what we're doing, often purpose can be created where we least expect it. The first step is to ask the right question. In this book, Coleman has written a concise and readable guide for a very important topic. A great read, said Dr. Goin.
   Step by step guide to purpose at work at any age
He also suggests that one needs to find purpose in one's work and steps to do it. John says it is not a singular, one-time only thing, but an always present and evolving purpose in each purpose that can help each person have a more fulfilling career.
   Purpose Demystified!
Thanks to John Coleman, for shattering the myth-perception that purpose is one overarching life goal somewhere out there for those who are clever or lucky enough to find it. Now I feel empowered to start designing my purpose, one that lines up with what I enjoy and am good at, he said. I'm excited to be working with him again, said Blair.
