Never Lose Your Why

keep the magic. do the work.

As we grow we sometimes lose sight of why we chose the work we do. Instead of serving a cause we shifted to serving for likes, recognition…climbing painfully up the attention status hierarchy.

Today I went back to a simple exercise I did in 2005….I stated all the reasons why I wanted to achieve 3 goals in particular. I wrote each goal at the top of the page and underneath list 10 or so reasons why achieving that goal was important to me.

I guess it’s the difference between being motivated by the approval of an extremely fickle and unreliable audience to relying on an inner compass that knows all and guides accurately.

Tap into that magic and serve with love.
