Having a clearly defined purpose keeps you focused on what matters. It helps narrow the possibilities — which in the beginning seem limitless. However, if you have a goal to go to the moon, you are not going to waste time to outfit the rocket with extra weight and ornamentation. A purpose statement helps you say yes to the right things (and people) and not to the wrong things.
