Believe it or not, we’re almost halfway through 2014. Now is the ideal time to revisit our new-year goals, assess our progress, and reflect on the reasons why you set those goals in the first place. Understanding the purpose behind your goals and visualizing your desired outcome may be key to your development.
Kicking off July 7th, join us in celebrating #42DaysofPurpose, tipping our hats to SAP’s 42 years of innovation, as we explore the deeper reason we come to work each day. Follow us on #LifeatSAP Facebook and Twitter for tips on how to discover and live your purpose, feel good stories, movie trivia and contests (see details below).
