Our virtue of the week is Purposefulness

Being purposeful is having a clear focus.  Begin with a vision for what you want to accomplish, and concentrate on your goals.  Do one thing at a time, without scattering your energies.  Some people let things happen.  When you are purposeful, you make things happen.

You are practicing purposefulness when you…
•         Have a clear vision of what you want to accomplish
•         Know why you are doing it
•         Focus on the goal
•         Get back on purpose if you get scattered or distracted
•         Do things one at a time and finish what you start
•         Persevere until you get results

Affirmation:
I am purposeful.  I am clear about what I am doing and why.  I stay focused on my goals.  I know I can accomplish great things.

On this  Valentines Day I send my love to my wife.  She is patient, she  is kind. She is generous with her time and gives her loving touch to the care of our children and in her work her she saves babies lives at the Schneider Hospital newborn intensive care unit. My dear Beverly, I love you.
