Announcing "Purpose Driven"

Through the month of June, Employee Health and Wellbeing challenged UD employees to create powerful purpose statements and share them with the UD community in a “Blue and Gold Purpose Challenge.” Those statements have been collected into an inspirational eBook called “Purpose Driven” available now for digital viewing.

Purpose. It’s what you find most important in life. It’s what drives you to do your best, and be your best.

People with a strong sense of purpose are happier, live longer, sleep better, recover faster, and have a bigger impact on the people, organizations, and causes they care about.  What do UD employees look like at their best?

What matters most to you in life? The answer to this question will look different for everyone. Your answer to this question may change over time — perhaps within a matter of weeks or more slowly over the course of a few decades.

How about the why? WHY do these things (or places or people) matter to you? Knowing the WHY behind what matters most gets to the root of your Purpose.

Taking time to reflect on questions like these can help you better connect with your purpose and motivate you to focus on what truly matters most to you. 

To uncover your purpose and stay inspired to live with purpose each day, download Purposeful, a new app available to UD Employees. Learn more below.

Be Bigger Than Yourself:

Do one thing for someone else today. 

Why It Matters: A person starts to live when he can live outside of himself.” — Albert Einstein

Pro Tip: Act in a way that benefits someone else — even a little — without immediate benefit to you: either at work, with family, or in your community. At the end of the day, reflect on how it made you feel.
