Like strategy, purpose statements are not predictors of the future. They help you pre-determine the choices you will make or not make when the future arrives.
Purpose statements are not a precursor to success, but they help you become more conscious in daily living.
There are successful people and institutions who only articulated their purpose statements after the fact.
The real purpose of a purpose statement is increased awareness in daily living.
Build one, but if you do not yet have one, your life still serves a purpose. Just not yet articulated.
