I want to offer a big “Thank you” to everyone who has been reading Monday Motivation since it launched in January 2023. I am in the middle of a brief hiatus from publishing the newsletter and realized several things I want to share with you.
First, motivation alone is not a topic of long-term interest to me.
Second, Monday Motivation is ubiquitous online, and standing out requires a well-chosen name. Yes, there’s a market for free content, and it’s competitive. Content is so abundant that it takes effort to give it away. It requires positioning a newsletter carefully.
Third, I love the idea of finding purpose in life. The need for purposeful life is universal, celebrated by world religions and especially throughout the Bible.
And so, I’m rebranding the newsletter and naming it “Today with Purpose.” I hope this name will offer more insight into the content available and be a little more noticeable on the internet.
I plan to begin regular newsletters at the end of August 2023. It will take me a few weeks to get enough content in the pipeline and define a new podcast format (yes, there is a supporting podcast). With the relaunch, I want to be ahead of things rather than chasing a schedule every week on demand.
So I look forward to staying connected over the next few weeks as I work on this project. Please share any ideas with me. I’d love to hear how you feel about the rebrand to Today with Purpose. Click around the website to see the recent content and color scheme changes.
I look forward to sharing more about how you can build your faith, find joy in your work, and make your mark. If you’re new to the newsletter and podcast, please subscribe so you don’t miss the messages I share.
“Every Monday is like a mini New Year, giving you the chance to start fresh with a clean slate. That‘s why the weekly emails are a blessing. You can choose to complain and hate Mondays, or you can be among the select few who embrace a new, fresh start. Today with Purpose provides a pep talk, wise principles, and a vision that can help you see that life and work are meaningful. I encourage everyone to read it and start their week off right with a vision and principles that don‘t conform to the world, but instead seek to serve others and better yourself!”
A Writer and Coach Finds Simple, Actionable Advice
“I truly enjoy receiving Harvey‘s email messages. They are easy-to-read, but packed with helpful and encouraging information. I created a separate email folder to store them just so I can refer back to them more easily. His topics are very timely and seem to address issues I am currently experiencing, like self-doubt and problems completing what I start, or they address topics that can help me personally and professionally, such as ways to provide more impact at work. I like to keep Harvey‘s messages because they provide simple, actionable steps to implement, but can lead to a significant return. Referring to the messages weeks later provides good accountability to ensure I‘m following the advice.”

A Coach and Author Sees a Message of Hope
“The value I find from Harvey‘s messages is an acknowledgment that many people feel dissatisfied, even with seemingly successful lives. His writing is such a reflection of him. Not a ‘get happy quick’ message but a message of empathy, compassion, and hope. He walks in his readers‘ shoes towards more purpose and impact. It is not quick and easy. But very possible.”
