Teleology (Greek: telos: end, purpose) is the philosophical study of design and purpose. A teleological school of thought is one that holds all things to be designed for or directed toward a final result, that there is an inherent purpose or final cause for all that exists.

The preamble of the Code of Ethics of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® clearly defines what our obligations are to clients, consumers, the public and our fellow REALTOR® members. But each individual has their own agenda to accomplish their own set of principles, guidelines and conduct of behavior.

The Golden Rule is the basis for the Code of Ethics which continues to evolve based on a new of criteria for the real estate game to be played. This includes the changes in Article 12 that describe what companies can and cannot do with regards to internet marketing. The purpose of the Code of Ethics is to hold real estate professionals to a higher standard of service to the people that they represent. However, the purpose of the REALTOR® is much deeper than the profession that makes the member money.

What is your purpose?

Everything you do closely moves you closer to your purpose whether you know it or not. I am a firm believer that everything that happens, happens for a reason. What drives me is my core values. Everything else is trivial. Teaching technology is not my purpose in life. It is my means to which I will accomplish my purpose. I urge you to take a closer look to what your values are to see if you are living your life according to your purpose by asking the following questions:

  1. What are your five top values or ways of being?

  2. Who is important in your life?

  3. If you passed away tomorrow would you be satisfied?

  4. What would the world look like if you were not around?

  5. What would your life look like when you have fulfilled your purpose?
