Often, the question “What’s the point?” is asked out of frustration and an answer is not pursued. The question is a good one to ask periodically outside of any frustration.
What is the point of the work you are doing now? Do you have an answer? If you do, is it satisfactory? If you do not, find one.
Your work should have meaning to you. Know what direction you are going in and why. Get clear on the “point” of your work.

Sometimes, you hit a plateau, where things are okay but you yearn for more. When this occurs, you can turn your focus to creating a new chapter. Are you ready? What would you like to create? You can start with a picture of what you would like to bring into your life and work – new experiences, growth, learning, advancement, abundance, a new environment, or the like.
A new chapter keeps things moving in your life and work. You can’t lose by creating one.

Perspectives on being practical can vary – seeing practicality as being grounded in what is and acting from there or as an inhibitor, such as when one says, “I’d love to do that, but it is not practical”.
How do you view practicality? Is it an element in your decision-making and choices? Examining your perspective on practicality may be fruitful. Allow it to help you move forward, rather than hold you back.

A well-known quote from Lucius Annaeus Seneca says “Our plans miscarry because they have no aim. When a man does not know what harbor he is making for, no wind is the right wind.” One way to establish the aim (and wind) to carry you forward is to identify what you hope to gain from your work in 2019. Are you looking for a promotion, satisfaction, monetary compensation, building skills, growth, being of service to others?
Ask yourself “What payoff am I going for this year?” In doing so, you will firmly set your aim and your plans will carry forward.
The best way to get where you want to be involves combining goals and action. Start with identifying the outcomes you want to achieve and then, set a strong intention to get there. Your strong intention fuels your actions.
Creating a strong intention involves planning, identifying the steps you need to take, persistence and discipline. Before you know it, you will be there.
What is a goal that you have? Decide what you need to do, set your strong intention and get into action!

Every once in a while it is good to ask, “What’s The Point?” You can ask this question about a number of things – your career, the amount of time you put into your work, your goals or the way you are living your life. In doing so, you re-center and check up on the alignment of your life with what you want to accomplish and be.
How does your answer to this question measure up? Are you where you want to be? Are you moving forward? Hopefully you are. If not, you now have what you need to change direction.
