Orientation in life transitions

What does it mean to live a happy & fulfilled life? We tend to reflect on this question especially during life transitions — at the start of a career, when changing jobs, when our family situations change, in mid-life crises, or at the transition into retirement. But not only us, Philosophers since Aristotle have been grappling with this question along with psychologists and other scientists — with surprising insights. While the approaches may differ vastly, they seem to agree on three fundamental pillars for a fulfilling life — which form the basis for the zentor Purpose Platform:

  • Purpose: We are more happy and feel purposeful if we find deeper meaning for our life
  • Engagement: We derive energy and zest by engaging with things we are passionate about
  • Appreciation: Being social animals, we search for connection with and appreciation from others that matter to us

Inspiration for your next project

Understanding what a fulfilling life entails is the main first step — turning this understanding into change is the second one. Our goal is to be the guide for your search for new purpose and to remove the hurdles and barriers which prevent you from realizing change. Thus, our zentor Purpose Platform, allows to find exciting topics and new projects to easily start or participate in, e.g. by:

  • Simple sharing of insights and relevant information in a group
  • Planning of activities, engaging tasks, and meaningful topics
  • Exchanging appreciation among group members and easily inviting new people

Small things and big projects aren’t mutually exclusive – in contrast we often find moments of joy in the small things. A smile from a stranger, a new idea, or creating something meaningful with others. The biggest hurdle usually is taking the first step – and our project platform aims to make taking it easier.

What our customers say

“The most dangerous risk of all – the risk of spending your life not doing what you want, on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.”
