Day #285:Why not to focus on “what”

I frequently hear people talk about not knowing what they want to do.

“I’m unhappy in my job but I don’t know what else to do.”
“I make a lot of money but don’t feel satisified with what I do.”
“I don’t know what to major in because I don’t know what I want to be.”

The inherent problem with this way of thinking is the focus on whatWhat we do is far less important than why we do it. What we do changes and evolves over time. Why we do what we do gets to the core of our beliefs and deeper purpose. Clarity of why helps bring clarity ofwhat. Consistency in why helps bring consistency in what.
