Your Why Matters More Than Your What or How…

In high school they ask us what we want to do, but they never stop to have us consider our why (our purpose/our calling). This is why people can get miserable in jobs—it’s not in balance with their why. Simon Sinek talks about this notion a lot and today I’m going to distill it for you in my own words and offer up how I’m applying this notion in my life. It’s my hope that after checking this lesson out, you’ll not only have a greater understanding of why your why matters most (as opposed to the what or how) and you’ll start to think about what your why is. Make sure to write it down as you do. Even as you work through the process of figuring it out, write everything down. Saying it to yourself in your head is not enough. You must speak it to existence. Once you have it, allow it to be your guiding light. And please share it with me and others, whether in the comment section or hit me up on social media @PhilSvitek. I’d love to hear from you!
