Discovering Purpose

The Key to Goal Design + Achievement

In goal design and achievement, purpose is key.  Purpose is the underlying reason why we do what we do, the driving force that propels us forward in our life’s journey. It’s about grasping the deeper meaning that grounds us and gives direction to our actions. In this blog post, we’ll explore the significance of purpose in the SPARK method used by Revise and Co., a framework designed to help individuals set and achieve their goals effectively.

Why Purpose Matters:

Purpose serves as the North Star that guides our decisions, actions, and aspirations. It gives meaning to our endeavors and provides clarity amidst life’s uncertainties. Without a clear sense of purpose, goals may lack direction and motivation, making them harder to achieve. Understanding our purpose empowers us to align our goals with our values, passions, and beliefs, leading to more fulfilling and meaningful outcomes.

Discovering Your Purpose:

To uncover your purpose, it’s crucial to delve into various aspects of your life that matter most to you. Start by exploring your passions, values, beliefs, goals, gifts, and talents. These are the building blocks that shape your identity and contribute to your sense of purpose. Additionally, consider the influence of your community, as connecting with like-minded individuals can offer insights into your role within a larger context.

The following steps will serve as a compass in your journey to uncovering your purpose. For a more structured approach, consider utilizing our “Begin to Discover Your Purpose” guide. This resource features thought-provoking questions designed to help you articulate your life’s purpose and prompts you to visualize it. Once you’ve formed this mental image, the guide assists you in crafting a purposeful mood board, offering a tangible representation of your aspirations.

  1. Explore Your Identity: Delve into various aspects of your life that matter most to you. Start by examining your passions, values, beliefs, goals, gifts, and talents. These elements shape your identity and contribute to your sense of purpose. Additionally, consider the influence of your community, as connecting with like-minded individuals can provide insights into your role within a larger context.
  2. Identify What Brings Fulfillment: Reflect on moments when you felt truly content and satisfied in your life. Think about experiences such as helping others, creating meaningful projects, or pursuing specific interests. These instances offer valuable insights into activities that resonate deeply with you and contribute to your sense of purpose.
  3. Prioritize Reflection: Dedicate time to introspection through practices like journaling, meditation, or deep contemplation. Reflect on your values, strengths, and aspirations, evaluating how they align with your personal and professional goals. Drawing from past experiences and lessons learned can provide clarity on what truly matters to you and guide your priorities in life.
  4. Engage in activities that ignite your passion: Engage in activities that ignite joy and passion within you. Experiment with various hobbies, volunteer opportunities, or career paths that align with your interests and values. Pay attention to how these pursuits make you feel and the sense of fulfillment they bring. Additionally, seek feedback from mentors, friends, or colleagues to gain valuable insights into your strengths and areas for growth. Their perspectives can serve as guiding lights on your journey to discovering your purpose.

Creating a Mental Picture:

Once you’ve identified key aspects of yourself and your community, it’s time to visualize your purpose. Imagine the life you aspire to live, the impact you want to make, and the legacy you hope to leave behind. This mental picture serves as a compass, guiding your decisions and actions towards your purposeful path.

Using a Mood Board:

A mood board is a powerful tool for bringing your purpose to life visually. It allows you to gather images, quotes, and symbols that resonate with your sense of purpose and vision for the future. By curating a mood board, you can visually represent your aspirations and keep them front and center as you work towards your goals.

Embracing Change:

Finally, it’s essential to recognize that purpose evolves with time and experience. What may resonate as your purpose today may shift tomorrow as you grow and evolve. Therefore, the process of discovering purpose is ongoing and iterative, allowing you to adapt and refine your sense of purpose throughout your life’s journey.


Incorporating purpose into goal design is a transformative process that empowers individuals to live with intention and meaning. By understanding and embracing your purpose, you can align your goals with your deepest values and aspirations, leading to greater fulfillment and success.
