Reflecting on 2016

How often do you hear these questions – “How high have you scored?  How many hours do you work? How much have you done?”

Quantity is, of course important. It is a metric of output or outcome. We live in a results-driven economy that relies on quantifiable data to measure growth and success. But that alone can’t be enough to define the meaning and purpose of your work, can it?


Earlier this year, I wrote a blog about “Productivity & Purpose” after hearing a warmly personal and illuminating interview with Maria Popova, founder of “Brain Pickings” on “On Being with Krista Tippett.”

In this season for reflection, our listeners have asked me to share my blog again through narration.  I hope you’ll find it helpful to your thinking about this year before embracing the new one!
