What is your Single Motivating Purpose?
It is the framework ( the system that you develop yourself on your life long journey ) that you can rely on to fulfil your dream by helping you stick to your mission.
Single Motivating Purpose – your mission in life
Framework for your life – It’s an active formula from witch you guide your actions in every area of your life only to remain focused on the essential stuff that is driving you forward to your goals.
It will keep you on your silent path those lonely days and years when nobody is noticing you for your work and outcomes. Like Ira Glass is explaining it:
“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple of years, you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.”
Your Desire and Motivation meet at the intersection of your SMP
Desire SingleMotivatingPurpose Discipline
You can see your SMP also as the GateKeeper – for your time and resources. If you invest them wisely you will get closer to success on your life’s path, otherwise, you will struggle longer then otters on your journey to the top not knowing that there is no such thing as the top of the mountain but the climbing journey in general. So the intersection of what you desire most in life and your discipline that you train yourself on and build over the years so that you don’t let life throw you around and remain focus on your mission, this is your SMP ( single motivating purpose ).
