The National Geographic made a study of communities around the world where people live exceptionally long lives. They found nine common elements among those communities. They were things like an active lifestyle, a low-fat diet, a supportive ohana and living with purpose.
For me, living with purpose is most important. One of the things I want to do is to help people be more resilient personally and financially. Futurists and project managers define a future scenario they want to accomplish. Then they work backward to break the project down into measurable steps. When you check off an accomplishment, you know you are moving towards your goal and it motivates you to continue.
Living with purpose will lead to a happier, longer, and more productive life. I talked with people from the Blue Zone Project. We discussed living with purpose and some of the other things you can do to live longer, better and achieve those things that are important to you. Check out our conversation by clicking here.
