Purpose May Not Be As Important As It’s Made Out To Be…

Here is an interesting article by Manu Joseph in his weekly column in Mint newspaper.

Purpose may not be as important as it’s made out to be

I partially agree with point of view that “Purpose” was created or at least propagated by a small group of people for some “purpose”. Self-help books is a big category who sell “Purpose” because that suits the type of contents they write.

I am not denying utility or usefulness of the concept of Purpose. However, it is also true that it’s a sophisticated concept relevant for a certain section of society or for a particular phase in life or for a specific kind of purpose.

One can still live a very enriching and fulfilling life even without having a purpose. Purpose is just a tool. It’s not the reason for being.
