PASDAQ® – Rediscover Your Purpose

What interests you? Think of the web pages you turn to most often, the book titles that attract your notice, the social media activities you enjoy and the tv programmes that intrigue you. What gets your attention? The answers are clues about what you will do well. Don’t ignore them. We make our best achievements out of things we enjoy and that support us financially.


Of the things that interest you, what gets you thinking about new ways to achieve them, new ideas for their use, new designs to attract people to them? Your creativity will be a big addition to your chosen career. If you don’t think you are very creative, learn to become inventive and able to conjure up a view about the future. It isn’t difficult but it needs some practice. When you have got it you are in command of your career.

Your career forms an important part of your purpose in life. Without a purpose you will drift through the years never knowing where you are heading, unable to chart your progress and wasting time you could enjoy. A purpose gives you something to aim for, a target of satisfaction that makes your life fulfilled. A fulfilled life is a happy life. You want to be happy.

Get these basic building blocks of your career in place and the education, skills training and experience you need plus the opportunities you have will become obvious. The PASDAQ® identifies skills you may want to learn. It says what to do that will make you successful. It lets you express yourself in a way that no other review does. It asks you penetrating questions and gives you the freedom to answer them in your own way. No forced-choice questions but something more meaningful – the right questions. Excellent mentoring is always done by questions. It helps you plot and plan your progress on the journey, too.

When you perceive your Purpose you:

  • Discover what really interests you
  • Understand your personality and how you work
  • Find out what makes you attractive to others
  • Reflect on how wise you are – and can become
  • Reveal your strengths and weaknesses
  • Work out how much money you need to achieve it

Before doing the PASDAQ® one of our Mentors will have a discussion with you by in-person or over Zoom. We can then assess the value of the PASDAQ® to you at your present stage of life. There is no charge for this informal chat and everything you tell us is in total confidence.
Once completed, two Terrific Mentors will do a detailed analysis by examining your answers. This is then followed up with two 90-minute Post- PASDAQ® sessions to analyse the results. The purpose of the sessions are help you find your Tree on the other side of the Field – your next objective in life.

There are four versions of the PASDAQ®:
Pre-career Version, mainly for those who have not yet done any full-time, properly paid work. Early goals largely determine a person’s success in career and life. In addition to the PASDAQ® this version has checklists of careers and working conditions to prompt clients doing it. This enables them to see a broad view of the options.

Mid-Career Version, for those currently employed or temporarily out of a job, who question where they are heading in their career, in their life or in both. Many people get lost or dissatisfied in their mid-years. The PASDAQ® is the best way to identify the next target and see how you should be equipped to get there.

Leadership Version, for those who are, or who aspire to become, leaders. In today’s world. Leadership is changing – both what it is for and how it is done. The role of good leaders is more important than ever. This version of the PASDAQ® is longer and more demanding than the other versions. It requires greater analysis time, too.

Pre-retirement Version, for those soon to leave full-time employment or who have recently retired. The length of your retirement is largely dictated by how well you use your time. Grandchildren and golf are excellent but you need a purpose beyond them to keep the little grey cells of the brain working at full stretch. The PASDAQ® is the best way to discover how to use what can be the most rewarding time of your life.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Once I know where I am going, can you help me get there?
    Our comprehensive Career and Job Service includes the PASDAQ® as one of it’s key stages. If you complete the PASDAQ® separately, you can jump over to the Career and Job Service and continue your journey and our experienced Mentors help you successfully use the focus brought about by the PASDAQ® to follow through on your new goals.
  2. How does this service work?
    It varies greatly based on the individual’s schedule and available time. The PASDAQ® questionnaire consists of 100 open-ended questions. Typically this takes participants anywhere between 2-6 weeks to complete in full, assuming about a 1-hour effort per day, including communication, clarification and guidance from your Terrific Mentor along the way, and assuming your available time is flexible. Once completed, this is then followed up with two 90-minute sessions to analyse the results in detail.
  3. Are there any student rates?There are special rates for genuine full-time students under 21 years old.
    As an employer you can sponsor and pay for one or more of your employees to do the PASDAQ®. If you do so we encourage you to get your employee to pay at least 30% of the cost. We know that those who pay nothing usually value the exercise less. If you are thinking of putting an employee through the PASDAQ®, please have a chat with us first and we will explain our approach to this in more detail.
