Mark Zuckerberg on the importance of purpose

In his Harvard talk to the Class of 2017 Mark Zuckerberg told his audience “ are graduating into a world that needs purpose. It’s up to you to create it.”

Terrific Mentors International have embraced the theme of purpose ever since we started mentoring, coaching and training twenty-five years ago. We compiled out first version of PASDAQ™ at the time. PASDAQ™ has developed greatly since then but its aim remains the same – to enable people to discover their purpose in life.

I was fortunate to be taught when young how important it was to find my Tree on the other side of the Field if I was going to plough a straight furrow. I recognised that the Tree was a metaphor for purpose. From the age of 13 to 85 I have had seven Trees. It is one of the greatest blessings of my life.

If you’d like to read the story of the Tree, please ask.

More than 8,200 people have now benefited from PASDAQ™. Without exception they have been helped to find – in some cases, to plant – their Tree. We put it like this:

“Purpose is key. It gives you the confidence to relax and succeed.
PASDAQ™ is the diagnostic tool that lets you find your purpose.”

The answers to five questions tell you if you need PASDAQ™:

Do I know where I am heading – in my career, in life?
Have I made the progress I wanted in the last two years?
Do I understand my strengths as well as my weaknesses?
Am I learning as fast as I need to in order to stay ahead?
As well as ‘Plan A’ do I have ‘Plan B’ ready to implement?
