John does not stumble through life. Everything is organized. Everything is purposeful. You purposefully plan a budget and live within your means. You purposefully work to have friends, and goals and dreams. That is not to say that everything is boring or completely planned. He purposefully plans fun, surprises ,and leaves room for spontaneity. Life is safer and more secure when it is lived on purpose. Your goals get reached when you don’t live by the whim of emotions.
