>The Why….

Posted: June 5, 2009 in Goals, leadership, relationships

>For a second I’d like you to think about a goal you might have, a degree you might be after, a relationship you are in. Let’s call that the “what”. Next, I’d like you to think about why you are in that relationship or why you are chasing that goal or degree. We’ll obviously call that the “why”. Not knowing the whys behind the things we are doing or want to do causes the following:

1. We won’t know the purpose behind all the efforts we are putting in.
2. We’ll get distracted by other people or things that come along.
3. We’ll give up more easily when we run into obstacles.

But if we know the “why” behind the “what” in our lives we can know exactly why we are in that relationship and exactly “why” we are in that job or chasing that goal. Take a bit and really examine why you are doing what you are doing. I think it will be worth your time.

It Matters,

Nathan
