What’s next? It’s a common question many people ask first.

  • What’s for dinner?
  • Where should I get my next job?
  • What should we do today?
  • Who should I speak with next?
  • What’s the next turn?

The above questions aren’t bad questions. The just shouldn’t be your first question. Many people rarely ask why but that’s exactly the type of question we should all be asking ourselves.

  • Why are we doing things this way?
  • Why do we turn here?
  • Why do I need this?
  • Why am I here?

In Simon Sinek’s book, Start With Why, he discusses the importance of starting your questions here first to eventually find your answer and inspire the people around you. It’s a great book you should read if you haven’t already.
