One definition of leadership is the art of influencing people to accomplish the mission while providing purpose, direction and motivation. During my military years I had the responsibility of leading or being leadthus those needs were met. Additionally I always had my family which provided me with a purpose. Now that I have lost that I seem to have none of this. I understand that I will always have my children, family and friends.but that is not the same. A spouse may not need the otherbut they make you feel needed. When you lose this you come to a place where you may think you have no purpose or direction (and thus no motivation). My new theory is that if I had a feeling of purpose or that I was needed I would bounce back much quicker. Please do not recommend my job. I have a great job that pays me very well (thus I cant leave it to start a new career), but it provides none of this. So the question for the day.what suggestions might you have that would make me feel needed and with a purpose?
