MKMMA – Week 5

PPN’S – What?  Which one’s?

When do you know you have the correct Personal Pivotal Needs (PPN’s) to weave through your Definite Major Purpose (DMP)?  That’s a great question, but only you know the answer as to what yours are, and there are many to choose from.

Although there are many PPN’s to select from, a lot of people believe that they can be narrowed down to seven.

  1. Liberty
  2. Autonomy
  3. Spiritual Growth
  4. Legacy
  5. Helping Others
  6. Recognition for Creative Expression
  7. True Health

So you pick two, and then they are weaved through your written DMP.  But, are they the right two remains the question, how do you feel about them?  Bottom line is you need all seven to create a life of harmony, so you’re getting them all anyway, why pick just two?

Which two?

This is the tough question for a lot of people, which two are the best for me, which two feel comfortable, which two do I really want?  Many people are unsure, and many change their PPN’s along the way, and that’s okay.  Some people say to write them down, close your eyes, open them and quickly choose the two that feel the most significant to you, trust your instinct.  Kind of feels like throwing darts at a list, but it doesn’t feel right or flow right in your DMP should you change the PPN’s?

Great question, what do you think?

You are designing your future, so your answer to that question is probably the correct one, right?


The journey continues, you can follow along right here.

    Hey, Doug. I totally get what you are saying. I had to change my PPNs a couple of times. I think the difficulty is that I can see all seven as having validity for me. The problem was picking the two most important ones. it was a great exercise.

  2. I changed my PPN’s a couple of weeks ago… and I was thinking about changing them again. I am still not comfortable with my DMP. Saying it aloud, I have stumbling points, then scribbles, then rewrites. I don’t know if everyone is going through this wrestling match with their subby… but mine is relentless! I agree about the shooting darts analogy! Glad to be on this journey alongside you! Thanks for sparking deeper thoughts.

    Your blog is simply stated and yet when you sit down and “think” on those things which carry your dreams and desires. The depth of the message can only be fathomed by each and every individual.
    My thoughts have led me to agree with your statement that “Bottom line is you need all seven to create a life of harmony…”
    Thanks for the message looking forward to following you.
