Why A Sense Of Purpose Changes Our Life

Intentional by David Amerland and Purpose in Life "Picture the brain as a machine whose job is to manage a finite amount of resources in order to get its job done. That job is to have us survive. Each moment of each day we are bombarded by countless sensations from the external world and an equal number of sensations from our internal one. If we paid attention to all of them, equally, we would lock up and be unable to get anything done. Surviving would become unlikely." Over at the Blogging Authors site, I have to explain why purpose in life is not the same as the purpose of life. Yet, a sense of purpose changes everything we do.

Intentional Interview with David Amerland Why Is Meaning Necessary In Life?

A life without meaning may not really be a life at all. But to get to this we need to consider just why meaning changes so many aspects of our life. In a guest blog post at the Novels Alive blog, Dayna Linton, poses a seemingly simple question that takes me over 1,000 words to answer. There are some fundamental aspects to life that we intuitively feel but cannot adequately articulate, much less analyze. Yet, the things we don't analyze trap us. Our failure to quantify them makes us unable to understand how to measure them. Anything we can't measure is virtually impossible to improve. Meaning, in our life, should not be left to blind chance.
