How Do You Create A New Economy Based On Purpose And Meaningful Relationships?

Agus Echague

Hurst believes people often do pro bono work to supplement a lack of purpose in their paid careers. So he's trying to create a new model for how/why we work, to take advantage of all that goodwill and yearning for purpose.
The Purpose Economy is driven by the changes we see, which are about increasing purpose for people and having deeper, more meaningful relationships. Hurst developed a diagnostic tool (http://www.imperative.com/users/sign_up) to help people identify their purpose profile.

      Bhahahaha! Maybe us GOODers have a driver trait in common!

    Ok, I just played around with the tool. Bloody awesome! Keen to know anyone else who did it!

        I'm the same but I serve organizations (probably due to my workaholic tendencies! bhahahaha Or because I believe change in the public sector can be made better from the private sector? Who knows!).

          It makes a fair amount of sense to me. I don't think "karma" is a good descriptor for my why, though. The bullets under it make a ton of sense to me, but I don't think being motivated by "a better solution to a problem" is the same as being motivated by karma (which I associate with "what goes around comes around"). I would call it something more like "leading the way."

            Oh but J! Karma it is!

            The definition of karma is "the sum of a person's actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences."

            You could think of it as "what goes around comes around", but for me is more like "what you do will have consequences now and in the future".

            So I guess in Imperative, your key driver IS karma since you are action driven (you are a doer), and you know each of your actions will have a direct impact on the environments/ places/ projects you work on.

            Makes sense?

              YES! That's how I see it! (I know this comment was for Jelena but I love your point). It's important to see our actions as part of a collective future.
