Place for Purpose
Do you remember the scene in "Duets" when Paul Giamatti's road warrior character wakes in one more nondescript hotel to give yet another presentation to a group of leaders he has never met and rushes around the conference room passing out his prospectus with apologies for his tardiness only to discover that he is with the wrong group, maybe even in the wrong city, which prompts a crisis of identity?
This exaggerated moment is actually not far from our experience. When we lose track of place, we lose track of purpose.
The great challenge is to slow our pace to be in place.
It is a difficult yet essential practice. For we must be in place to realize our purpose.
