The virtue of purpose refers to the notion of acting always toward a particular goal. As one's highest goal should always be maintaining and sustaining one's life, purpose dictates that all of one's actions should contribute to this highest goal. Since purposefulness is a virtue, it follows that purposelessness is a vice, as nearly all purposeless actions are (ultimately) destructive to one's life.
