The WHY of whatever you’re doing is such an important question to ask. I read recently Simon Sinek’s book titled, “Start with Why.” The premise is that anything and everything you do should have a Why behind it. I recently attended a virtual meeting with people who get prepared for the GED exam via online prep courses. What they lack is a motivation, they are smart and open-minded but for some reason didn’t finish their high school education.
Why do you do the work you do? Why do you help others? Why? We all know WHAT we do and HOW we do it. Think about your job. You work for a living most likely (this is the WHAT). You go to work everyday and do your job (the HOW).
The Typical Why: You most likely do it for the money you earn to support yourself and/or your family, improve your lifestyle etc.
The question is, is this the real WHY you want to embody?
