Wake up. Shower. Eat breakfast. Coffee. Commute. Work. Whether we like it or not we are creatures of habit. Just like any of the routines listed above, our day focuses on the “how” we will continue our routines, but we often forget the “why.” We forget what drives or motivates us to select the routines we keep, and discard those of our choosing. The answer lies in asking ourselves “why”? Years ago, I began asking myself “why” more often after watching a video that focused on the source of great leadership- a topic featured on TED Talks. In summary, asking “why” was a determinative factor that drives individuals to be their most successful selves. Interestingly, it allowed those individuals to inspire and motivate not only themselves, but those around them as well.
