“With his warm, engaging, and vulnerable style, Dr. Tsipursky shares his own personal struggle, and that of many others, to reconcile the world of science and reason with the more elusive and subtle pingings of the human heart – to create a life that is larger than oneself,” wrote Brandon Peele, purpose coach and Founder of PlanetPurpose and EVR1 Institute. “Dr. Tsipursky shows how modern research in fields such as cognitive psychology and neuroscience provide demonstrable strategies that allow us to create a purpose – our own purpose,” according to Dr. Bo Bennett, a Doctor of Psychology and author of Logically Fallacious. Other experts shared similar opinions. Those who read draft versions gained much from their experience. “Its research-based strategies for evaluating one’s purpose and meaning have helped me develop a clearer vision for my future. I am currently pursuing a new set of goals – both personally and professionally – that align with my values,” in the words of John Johnson.

Science really can answer life’s big questions, such as “why am I here,” as shown by a wave of recent research in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and medicine. The research highlights that such questions are vital, since people who lack a rich sense of purpose have significantly worse mental and physical health. The vast majority of guidance on meaning and purpose comes from traditional sources such as cultural heritage and religion. While this guidance works for some, unfortunately traditional sources of meaning and purpose do not speak nearly so well to others who want an evidence-based approach in which they can be truly confident. This workbook offers science-based strategies and data-driven tools to help you improve your mental and physical health by finding the meaning of your life and thus living with a purpose. It is published by Intentional Insights, a nonprofit devoted empowering people to refine and reach their goals by providing research-based content to help improve thinking, feeling, and behavior patterns.
