- Why are you doing all of this work?
- Why is that?
- And so why would that be?
- Why might you think that?
- Why again?
Seems ridiculous to ask yourself “why?” five times, but understanding the WHY behind your work is important.
Sure, you don’t need a great “why” to make money or do the things you want, but you do need a strong “why” if you want to live a life of social impact and purpose.
Audit your “why” and you will increase the chances of living a regret-free, purpose-driven life.
Audit your “why” in other areas of your work and life and you will get down to the real issue you need to address.
