    Greatness 101: living with purpose

    While greatness might be associated most often with conquerors and kings, what it means to be great isn’t one-size-fits-all. The definition of greatness will be different for everyone, in fact, because there’s so many different things in this world to be great at, and so many ways to be great at them. But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t common ground, and common habits, among individuals that achieve greatness across all spheres of life. 

    What makes someone a great parent, leader, artist, athlete, or spouse, is not about achieving some external benchmark. Greatness is about living up to your own ideals, accomplishing your personal goals, and fulfilling your own life’s purpose. It's about living your full potential, and doing it with the mindful awareness that brings your full presence to the journey along the way.

    So the first step on the road to greatness is an inward one: cultivating the vision for what living your full potential might look like. This isn’t the familiar question, “What do you want to do with your life?” It’s deeper than that. To achieve greatness you have to ask yourself who you dream of being, what it is that you are passionate about, how you want to live, and what legacy you’d like to leave behind when your life’s journey ends.

    And while vision starts with a dream, it doesn’t end there. What makes a vision powerful is when it's coupled with an actual plan. So, cultivating your own vision has to be as specific, and personal, as possible. A great way to get clear on what living your full potential might look like is to start by imagining one perfect day.

    How would you start your day, if you were living your dream? Would you begin spending time with your loved ones? In meditation? Perhaps exercising for physical health, or grounding yourself in nature? Your ideal day might include honing your craft, growing your business or motivating others through your leadership. 

    Writing out an ideal schedule can give you important insight into your priorities and how you want to spend your time. Be sure to include details like how many hours you spend on work, on hobbies or interests, and connecting with friends and family. These are important clues to what you truly value, and how you’d like to spend your most valuable resource: your time.

    Holding this vision firmly in mind, it's time to tackle the obstacles.

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll

    Einer der besten, bequemsten und sinnvollsten Apps die auf ein Handy gehören. Jeden morgen 15-20 Minuten für die eigene Weiterbildung/Entwicklung oder Wissen.

    Viele tolle Bücher, auf deren Kernaussagen reduziert- präzise und ansprechend zusammengefasst. Endlich habe ich das Gefühl, Zeit für Bücher zu finden, für die ich sonst keine Zeit habe.
