  21. 21. “I apply the tools of econometrics a few timesa year, but I apply my knowledge of thepurpose of my life every day. It’s the singlemost useful thing I’ve ever learned. I promisemy students that if they take the time to figureout their life purpose, they’ll look back on it asthe most important thing they discovered atHBS. If they don’t figure it out, they will justsail off without a rudder and get buffeted inthe very rough seas of life. Clarity about theirpurpose will trump knowledge of activity-based costing, balanced scorecards, corecompetence, disruptive innovation, the fourPs, and the five forces.”CLAYTEN CHRISTENSENHARVARD BUSINESS SCHOOL

What have you learnt on your journey to give or teach others? My Point So what is the point of life? Why are we here? My World How do you see the reality? How does the world work?
  25. 25. SPIRAL 1 What is the reason the organisation exists? Our Purpose How it can best serve? Who are you serving and what is possible for them? Harnessing these, what is Vision & your vision for a better Values world in 5-7 years time in the context of the world’s problems? What 4 qualities do you value most in this vision?

My Purpose What is your reason for existing? What special sauce do you bring to any situation? Where do you serve best?
