I’m going to build on the work of Simon Sinek… Simon suggests that we “start with why” and use this focus to drive our decision making. This is great advice, but incomplete.
When we have a sense of our why, the next best question to ask is “Why not?”
Why not start this business?
Why not write that novel?
Why not travel to a place my parents think is scary?
Why not volunteer my weekends to a cause I believe in?
