A person's purpose lies in the present not something in the expectation of tomorrow." - Robb Thompson http://www.winninginlife.org/archives/previous06/apr06.htm (Reasons why people don't fulfill their purpose).

So he just put to words what I was trying to put my finger on. I know a question I liked to ask people was, "what do you want to accomplish in your life and how are you living it out today?"

Other good points from the message... Don't expect to know God's will for your life that doesn't include the Bible if you are not applying what is in the Bible. If the devil can stop your focus he can stop your energy. Intermitent purpose is not what we are after.
