Our highest purpose is to share knowledge

The Meaning Of Life Is To Find Your Gift. The Purpose Of Life Is To Give It Away.

“the whole purpose of life has been to pass on what was learned. There is no higher purpose”

Morgan Freeman’s character explaining what to do to Lucy in the movie of that name

Yesterday I was inspired by my guest on #WhatComesNextLive, Gregg Parini. Gregg is in his 34th year as head coach of Denison University Swimming and Diving. Take the time, please, to visit the links above and either watch the show or listen on the podcast links.

He is truly passionate about his work, intellectually curious. More than any of this, he brings a core value of love to all he does, supporting his athletes not only on a four-year journey but in creating the foundations for the next forty years.

As we spoke, I was reminded once again of my greatest mentor, Ed Percival and how he and I, both movie lovers, shared a favourite movie and favourite scene. The movie is called Lucy, the favourite scene leads to the quote above. Ed’s lasting legacy is what he shared with others in so many ways. There can be no higher purpose than to pass on what we learn.

Thank you, Gregg Parini.
