UPDATE: Why Your Why is So Important

September 10, 2010

Wow, there were so many fantastic responses to my post last week on the importance of your Why in accomplishing, well…anything. Thank you for sharing what drives you!

Thanks, specifically, to John T. Meyer for sharing his thoughts and the link to this TED video from Simon Sinek:

I recorded my thoughts on your Why, but Simon’s talk blows mine out of the water. It’s well worth the 18 minutes.

Happy Friday!

UPDATE 09/20/2010: I just received a personal email from Simon, thanking me for the recent mentions and sharing his own Why:

Annie –
I’ve seen your posts about the Why and want to say thank you for helping to share the idea.
When I discovered the concept a few years ago, it profoundly impacted my view of the world and the way I operate in it. I realized its potential and decided to share it with as many people as possible.
Thank you for being a part of this movement to inspire those around us.
Inspire on!

Thank you, Simon, for not only sharing your Why message with the world, but for reaching out to those who are helping that message spread. Love it.
