How to live your purpose. I love this graphic.

This is a simple but useful framework to consider as you think about your legacy.  And it’s worth revisiting regularly to see if what you do during your waking hours aligns with this graphic and how squarely. -cch

  4. I write as an Asian, with all the pent-up emotions of my people. What I say will annoy many people who prefer the more conventional myths brought back by writers on the Orient. All I can say is that I try to tell the truth. Truth, like surgery, may hurt, but it cures.

  7. Great interview with Professor Christensen.  I love the fact that he remains so grounded spiritually and is able to integrate that into his work and in helping others.  For those that don’t believe in God, he has very cogent thoughts about why everyone should try and find fulfilling work and determine their mission in life:

    "Maybe I would say that everyone would be judged at the end. People might not believe that there’s a God that will assess what we did, but certainly everybody who knows you will assess what you did. The fact that you are no longer here may just be a fleeting thought because you didn’t make an impact on them for the good. Or it may be that you affected them for ill; then they could actually be quite happy that you’re…you know.

    Or it may be that you affected them in profound ways, so that they remember you long after you’re gone, because of the impact that you had on them. And I think that everybody cares about how they will be judged.”

    Today is Keith Haring’s birthday, which is being celebrated on Google’s homepage.  I’ve enjoyed spending some time earlier this morning reading a bit more about him beyond just the artwork which he is famous for.  Besides learning that he also grew up in Pennylvania and eventually found his way to New York, I’ve been very impressed to read more about his approach to “Life, Art, and Activism” in his short 31 years on earth and that he used his vocation as an advocation for broader purposes such as civil rights, public health, and cultural sensitivity (an example of which is the picture above).  A nice short biography can be found here.
His perspective around the impact of art on society is summed up nicely in this quote which I love:
“I don’t think art is propaganda; it should be something that liberates the soul, provokes the imagination and encourages people to go further. It celebrates humanity instead of manipulating it.”
