One of the annoying but beautiful things about little kids is that they constantly ask, “Why?”. It’s a great question to ask when you’re trying to make sense of your world! As we get older and busier, we become more likely to slip into routine ways of doing things without even really thinking about it.
Do you want to focus and reinvigorate your team or yourself? Start asking “Why?” questions. WHY are we doing this program? WHY do we do it this way? WHY does it matter that I turn up and am committed? Why, why, why?
When we know the WHY behind what we do (and not just “because we’ve always done it that way”), we’re more likely to commit to it, be excited about it, and use our time and resources in the most effective way.
