Several years ago, I went to a neighborhood restaurant to pick up a take-out order for dinner.


Nearing the restaurant, I noticed red paint on the concrete. Someone had taken the time to stencil and paint this provocative question on the sidewalk:



I stopped and stared, as those four simple words sparked a number of thoughts and additional questions. What am I doing to serve others? How do my interactions with others—both personally and professionally—support the “greater good”? Am I using my talents optimally to add value wherever and whenever possible? How am I making a difference?


At the launch of 2017, I find myself pondering similar questions about purpose and meaning. This signals me to take time for self-reflection, which ultimately moves me toward renewal, change, and growth. Now becomes the best time to re-visit my direction—purpose and vision—and set clear intentions and goals.
