When you write up the goals and purposes of your area, I have found that there should be a “spark.” That is to say, if you write up your goals and your purposes and you are just plain bored, it would be my opinion that either you just don’t have it right or that you’re in the wrong business! To be successful you must want to be in that business. You could have five or ten purposes and you could have three or four goals.
As one pins down the purposes and goals of the company, an increased enthusiasm usually occurs, a desire to produce the products of the company occurs, and a rekindled overall association with the company and its activity results.
There should be a surge of energy, some excitement!
BEHIND EVERY STOP THERE IS A FAILED PURPOSE.1 STOPS ALL OCCUR BECAUSE OF FAILED PURPOSES.
If one is feeling “stopped” or simply in a condition of no forward motion, the original purposes must be examined. If there is a “stop” in the forward motion, there must have been motion at one time. Therefore, to rehabilitate the motion, to get past the stop, examine the original purpose.
THERE IS A LAW ABOUT THIS—ALL YOU HAVE TO DO TO RESTORE LIFE AND ACTION IS TO REKINDLE THE FAILED PURPOSE. THE STOPS WILL AT ONCE VANISH.
That law is so powerful it would practically revive the dead!
It applies to organizations.
It applies to cities or nations. . . .
Purposes must be executed. They are something to DO.2
