Leaders that last is a book packed with wisdom.
In the chapter on purpose, he commends the idea of writing down a purpose statement. I did this quite a few years ago having been forced to do it on an expensive leadership program my firm sent me on.
It is one of the most helpful things I have ever done .
The book that Kraft recommends to help you in this task is one I have never heard of. He writes:
"One of the best books I have found on the subject of formulating your purpose is The Path by Laurie Beth-Jones" [Page 45]
($0.08 on Amazon!)
Buying this and booking some time out in your schedule with a Moleskine might be just the launch pad you need.
