Napkin test

The Purpose Formula by Richard Leider, author of the book “The Power of Purpose”. He calls it The Napkin Test as he says you can do this exercise on a piece of napkin.


Gifts + Passions + Values = Calling

The critical question is “What makes you get out of the bed every morning?”

Gifts = Your natural talents. Things you love to do. Things you are inherently pretty good at.

Passions = What you really care about? Things you are most interested in.

Values = Where you do what you do? Is it a culture that values you for what you do?

Calling = Calling is different from a job. A job could be something we do to pay the bills. Calling is something you do that brings you joy, energy, passion, alignment, and even productivity.

Hope you too find The Napkin test valuable.
