THE POWER OF YOUR "WHY"

Re-reading some of my notes from "The Compound Effect" by Darrin Hardy (a great read -- and I have the audio version for my car as well) -- and it reminded me of a great Don Meyer quote:

"It doesn't matter where you coach,
it matters why you coach.”

Here is what Hardy says about the power of your “why” —

"The power of your why is what gets you to stick through the grueling, mundane, and laborious. All of the hows will be meaningless until your whys are powerful enough. Until you’ve set your desire and motivation in place, you’ll abandon any new path you seek to better your life. If your why-power—your desire—isn’t great enough, you’ll end up like every other person who makes a New Year’s resolution and gives up too quickly and reverts to sleepwalking through poor choices. Let me give you an analogy to help bring it home."
