Our fearless Mayor - helping us kick off The Post in style!

Purpose, it’s such a loaded word. Burdened with all manner of metaphysical, hippie-dippy, irrational baggage and crazy claims. Yet, increasingly, science is backing up the far-reaching effects of living and working from a place of deep and resonant purpose. Massive organizations are researching it, and discovering vast reserves of capacity, optimism and excellence. Purpose, it seems, is a catalyst for potential. When we discover, distill and embody our purpose, we tap into a hidden reservoir of a potential, vitality and meaning. Life comes alive and the quality and quantity of what we contribute to the world rises dramatically. We benefit, those we lead and serve benefit, and the world benefits. In this powerful presentation, serial-entrepreneur, award-winning author, experience-designer and founder of mission-driven media-venture, Good Life Project®, Jonathan Fields, takes on a journey into the center of purpose of possibility and reveals a powerful approach to discovering, distilling and embodying yours.
