Are you asking why?

  • Why? What? How? When? Where
    Those questions kickstart almost every thought, tweet and blog post I write.

    • Those are all great questions Larry. Gets the creative juices flowing.

  • Asking why is part of what drove me to pursue the engineering field. Not asking why STRETCHES me on a daily basis.

    • That’s great Jon! Asking a question and it leading to your current field.

  • That is the magic question that forces you to think out the box.

    • So true Lincoln! What’s the most recent Why question you’ve asked?

      • Joe, I’ve asked why do I do what I do? Whats the reason and is it GOD focused.

  • That has to be our focus! I like how simple and powerful this post is.

    • Thanks Kimanzi. It didn’t post exactly the way I wanted to, but thought it was a great quote to share. What’s been your Why question lately?

  • Selah

  • Great reminder, we need to always know and remember the why of what we are doing.

    • Exactly. When we have the Why, we have something that can propel us through the trying periods of our endeavors.

  • I’m planning on reading Simon Sinek’s book “Start with Why.”

    Why gets to the belief center.

    Why gets to the heart.

    Why takes us beyond surface and into the root.

    • Sounds like a good book. I’ll have to check it out.
