5 Hard Lessons On Finding Purpose

You made it! See you, scaling through 2016’s first half like a pro with no slowing down in sight 🙂

As you step into the second half, it’s definitely a good idea to evaluate progress towards your short term and long term goals. Christian or non, successful people like Oprah and Steve Jobs mostly tend to be expert planners, and that’s why their lives seem to be going quite well.
