Over at Goodreads, my fabulous publisher, Elevate Publishing, is giving away fifteen free copies of my next book, The Purpose Effect.
The only thing you have to do is click a button to enter. Simple. Easy. (at least click by May 11)
But over here at the worldwide headquarters of ‘dp‘ … I’m giving away 10 signed copies of the book with a little wrinkle. There’s a twist. Are you ready?
Ever since publishing my first book, Flat Army, I’ve become possessed by the concept of purpose. What I have realized (as you will hopefully read in the book) is that there are three categories of purpose:
This handy diagram might help. (after all, it is the basis of the book)
But, what I also discovered through my research, thinking, interviewing and writing … is that it all starts with you. It starts with personal purpose.
In order to gain entry to the contest (to win a free/signed book), I’m asking that you share your “personal declaration of purpose” statement in the comment field below.
Don’t have one?
That’s ok. There is no time like the present to think about a one or two-line sentence that describes how you choose to operate your life. This is your “personal declaration of purpose.”
We’re not here to see through each other; we’re here to see each other through.
As I am an educator, I’d also like to ask our three goats (the children) to help in the final judging of the ten best purpose statements. That way, I can help them see the importance of such a statement and such an action to take in life. (And don’t worry, these statements can change over time – there is no perfect one, or perfect answer.)
Deadline: May 8, 2016 6:00pm Pacific Timezone
I will announce the winners on May 9 in this space.
My many thanks in advance for sharing. I look forward to reading your submissions.
