We are seeking coherence and alignment from the macro level of our ideals to the micro level of various opportunities that are before us. We use a funnel imagination, identifying ideals that move us, values that inspire us, and purposes that we are working toward. To gain clarity, we create examples at each level, and begin to identify personal, professional, and community Higher Purposes. Opportunities gain energy from being directly tied to specific purposes.
