Ever thought about what your purpose is in life? I mean, really think about how you will make your mark. I didn’t. Not really, until the spring of 2018.
After the passing of a much loved family member at the golden age of 94 years, I found myself questioning and searching to understand my purpose. I spent considerable time in deep contemplation and when I finally came up from it, I decided that whatever my purpose was to be, it needed to be relevant to my life, both personally and professionally, small in scale, but grand enough in design to have global significance.
I set out to establish good life goals and realised that the ‘why’ in my personal life must stretch to include a larger aim of doing social good for my community – local and global. Linking my personal lifestyle to the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals was an easy fit. Around the same time, I learned that the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and United Nations Environment launched a sustainable lifestyles campaign, fittingly named, The Good Life Goals. What are the changes right?? I could not have timed this any better.
Learn about the Good Life Goals.
