We all know that knowing your "why" is important, but it's so much more than just a talking point or mission statement. It's the thing that drives your decisions, which is why you should come back to it frequently.
Recently, my husband shared how he is using the question of “why” to help his team stay on track. They were given a new assignment by their administration and immediately jumped into a how to complete the assignment and who would do each part. They argued for almost an hour trying to figure out the best approach and what would have the best outcome without adding too much to their already heavy workload.
But they got nowhere because they didn’t start with why they were working on this new assignment. They didn’t know the overall purpose, so they got lost in the details. This happens frequently in business, especially when you’re doing things on your own with no one to bounce ideas off of.
So how do you make sure you’re always making Why a part of your business? We’re going to go through a few easy steps to help you stay on track.
