Meaning and purpose go hand-in-hand right. To have meaning or purpose means I wake up every morning knowing I kiss my wife good morning and I'm a husband to her and a father to my son. I'm just trying to be as good as myself and take action in the roles that I've put myself into because I asked my wife to marry me and we had a son, my little man. I want to be the best father account for him. Waking up with meaning and purpose and knowing that those are my jobs and that those will always come first matter no what happens at work and no matter what happens with anything else, I can't lose.
