What Is Your Next Step Toward Fulfilling Your Purpose?

Graduation season is here, and naturally, we’re thinking about what’s next. Even if you aren’t about to receive a diploma, we believe you can always benefit from taking a moment to reflect. But we have a twist: don’t get overwhelmed by what you want to be doing in a decade. We challenge you to think at a “manageable” scale of a mini-step that pivots you toward a new direction. This helps break down our action into bite size chunks.  So, with that in mind, what will you do this month? Finish a project? Connect to new resources? Take a vacation? Make time to write? Answer below with your next step toward fulfilling your purpose.

I actually did just graduate! I’m nowhere near my ideal job as my major didn’t really help it. But I’m starting a blog and video series to show my expertise… hopefully something good will come of it!

I am finally after 8 years going to complete the steps to get a copy of Shelley Jackson’s Skin; becoming a word project. I just stumbled across the submission form and now need to find two suitable photos to send in. I got the tattoo in 2004! I will do this by June 1st of this year.


I am also getting ready to launch a crowdfund on Indiegogo to get my sustainable startup financed!

Last, but not least – I will continue to write in my mother’s gratitude book to keep her spirit alive and keep me on the right track! I will not be afraid to shine even if I have to shine alone for awhile!

I am very interested in obtaining a partner from your organization/referral to help me start a project... A new construction Multifamily Units !00% Green Efficient ...I own my own property and have 4 acres of land Available.. just sitting here undeveloped.... I am disabled on Soc.Sec...but have been contacting NYSERDA and The Green Energy Star programs... I am looking for a partner also through thier program but feel it just might be more efficient to join with your program and get the expertise from your Green Program... I have been researching to find out information but what an advantage if I could also get your program to be involved... This would be the only Green Enegy MultiUnit Housing Complex in our communtiy ---and need all the help that I can get to help me get this project started.... NYSERDA and the Energy Star program have incentives to help in this initiative.   I just want all the help and expertise I can acquire... Please contact meASAP...i have nothing started just the idea and how it will save energy  not only for the renter but for the entire community....Please send advise and referrels if possible...Thank you very much...

I am going to Washington, DC this week to meet with people who are designing their own self-directed programs of study. I want to learn more about social enterprise and early childhood education, but there are not any existing graduate programs that provide the education I want. So on Friday, I will work with others to make an education plan for myself!
