This was from a talk I gave at the Philippine Dental Association - Cavite Chapter on May 19, 2017.

The big idea was anchored upon the critical need for people to make a daily deliberate choice of living a life with a sense of purpose.

While this shows only snippets of the whole content, I hope it would help and provoke your thinking.

Should you be interested to invite me so I can give a similar talk to your organization, go to the link before for more information:

20170519 A Purpose Driven Life - PDF

  1. 1. Objectives • To rejoice with what God is doing in your life and in your organization. • To call us to re-think about our lives, and re- orient our purposes to something larger than ourselves. • To re-learn that, as a professional, you are also a servant-steward leader.
  2. 2. A Purpose-Driven Life PDA Cavite Chapter 19 May 2017
  3. 3. “…Only Matt’s shot pierced the wrong target resulting in a score of 0.”
  4. 4. “People are always doing something with God. Human beings inescapably love God, or love something else. We take refuge in God, or in something else. We set our hopes in God, or in something else. We fear God, or something else.” - David Powlison
  5. 5. Is there more to life than these?
  6. 6. Where will you be, or who will you have become 10-20 years from now?
  7. 7. Choose to live life with a clear sense of purpose.
  8. 8. Self-Diagnostic Questions • What is the most incredible thing you can imagine yourself accomplishing? • What do you think about the most, dream about, plan for, and strive hardest to gain? • What do you do that brings reward to others? • What God-given gifts or abilities do you have that make you special? • What do you see around you that breaks your heart?
  9. 9. “Begin with the end in mind.” - Stephen Covey
  10. 10. Winchester House
  11. 11. What makes this unique home a tourist attraction is the owner’s total lack of a master plan — all that mattered to her was that the activity continued. The result is a well-built and expensive architectural chaos.
  12. 12. The 24,000 square feet contains 160 rooms, 40 staircases, 5 or 6 kitchens, and 47 fireplaces. Visitors are in for a surprise at every turn. Staircases ascend into the ceiling — literally.
  13. 13. Doors open onto brick walls or even open spaces with a several-story drop! Corridors lead nowhere, and windows show only wallboards. Remarkable in its quintessential uniqueness, it draws thousands of visitors each year from around the world.
  14. 14. Going Deeper • Why do I do what I do? • Where is my life headed? • Do I have a life plan? • Do I have a personal mission/purpose statement that helps anchor my life? • If yes, do my current habits build up towards my intended purpose and goals?
  15. 15. Patrick Gelsinger
  16. 16. “Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.” - Apostle Paul (Col 3:23)
  17. 17. At every phase of my career I’ve always said, “Okay, now I’m in the next phase of my full- time ministry.”  I like to think I have a congregation of 13,300 today as CEO of VMware.  It’s not Menlo Park Presbyterian Church or Reality Christian Church.  It’s VMware, and that’s the church that God has given me to be a minister to, and be a steward. - Pat Gelsinger
  18. 18. Mission Statement? • Mission —  a succinct statement on who you want to be as a person • Values – the principles by which you want to live, and • Goals – what you want to accomplish.
  19. 19. “There was nothing haphazard about [Jesus’] life – no wasted energy, not an idle word. He was on business for God (Luke 2:49). He lived, he died, and he rose again according to schedule. Like a general plotting his course of battle, the Son of God calculated to win. He could not afford to take a chance. Weighing every alternative and variable factor in human experience, he conceived a plan that would not fail.” - Robert Coleman
  20. 20. Ask Yourself • What is the most incredible thing that I can imagine myself accomplishing? • What do I think about the most, dream about, plan for, and strive hardest to gain? • What do I do that brings reward to others? • What God-given gifts or abilities do I have that make me special? • Given everything that I see around me, what breaks my heart?
  21. 21. Intersection of 5 Factors Passion Abilities Personality Experience Opportunity

  31. 31. If someone else thinks they have reasons to put confidence in the flesh, I have more: circumcised on the eighth day, of the people of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews; in regard to the law, a Pharisee; as for zeal, persecuting the church; as for righteousness based on the law, faultless.
  32. 32. But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. - Apostle Paul (Philippians 3:4-8)
