The significant life

Integrity not only harnesses our passions but focus our intentions.*
(Erwin McManus)

Significance […] hides in plain sight. Carrying out seemingly small, unimportant acts, with intention and conviction. Without permission, to rewrite the future.**
(Bernadette Jiwa)

Significance is more about finding the right self than it is about finding the right thing to do.

Finding the right self is about having a oneness (self to others, self to the world, self to self) and resonating deeply with this – it’s much more likely to say “Look at you!” then “Look at me!”

The next thing step is then to turn up as that person every day.

The significant life is your life.
