Kathrin Lake: Writer, Author, Teacher
I was told that a goal is different from a purpose because a goal you can cross off a list and a purpose you never do. I could never settle on just one purpose but I got my core purposes in life down to these things:
- To Love
- To Laugh
- To Teach
- To Learn
- To Tell Stories Well
To be honest I still work at all of these every single day and I guess that is the point. I do love writing and writing books and helping others do the same. I am a self avowed story addict and I keep learning about all of it. Sometimes I learn about things I don’t want to learn but are useful, like how to sell books. If you want my full longer story, please go to K’s Story page but for now, if you are curious, have a look at my Books, my Blog and poke around. And do contact me about any of it at the Contact page. I’d love to hear from you.
Message from Kathrin About Life
In my blog , often you will discover my thoughts on how to move from just surviving in life to thriving. Yes, I wrote a book by the similar title, From Survival to Thrival, but guess what? The journey never ends; life has ups and downs, struggles and triumphs, surprises and drudgery, but there are still core things that make all people healthy and happy and that is my journey… What are those things independent of traditional ideas of “success?” We can all define our own parameters for success. A clue for me is the original Old French meaning of the word “success” which is “move to the next thing.” And that is what I’m doing baby, that is what I’m doing.
