Why?

Whatever you’re doing, remember why you’re doing it. It will keep you focused and motivated. Keeping the “why” in mind, will put everything into perspective.

Sometimes we get so obsessed with the details of life, that we forget the reasons. We settle into habits and patterns, and continue with them just because they’re comfortable. Regularly remembering why, often will open up new options and possibilities.

If an obstacle is blocking your path, ask yourself why you want to get around it. That takes the focus off of the obstacle, and lets you concentrate on your goal. Consider that there may be an entirely different way of getting there.

What are you doing today? Why? Knowing the why, when it is meaningful enough to you, will keep you going no matter what.

— Ralph Marston
