Some people associate having a purpose in life with having a career which is not entirely wrong but your job is just a part of who you are.
It is important to have a purpose because it gives meaning to your worldly suffering. Without a meaning, without finding something worth feeling the pain of the day, our lifes would be unbearable.
It is important to live a life of virtue because even if it does not tell you what you should do it shows you what not to.
I like what professor Jordan Peterson once said, that you should carry a rock that is not too easy to carry (it will give you no meaning ) or too hard (it will crush you)
Thank you, Michael for your thoughts on this matter! Keep writing!
