Web design author and ex-marketing strategy consultant Ben Hunt asks ‘Why do we do what we do?
Really… what is the ultimate point?
- Is it just to make money? If so, exactly how much money is “enough money”?
- Is it to make a better world? If so, what does that world look like exactly?
- Is it to be remembered as important? If so, what do you want your obituary to say?
It isn’t for me to attempt to answer that question for you. But I can tell you this…
When you know what you stand for, what you stand against, what you value, what you don’t care for, the people or causes you wish to champion… you actually discover yourself.
And when you do that, your whole life becomes simpler, and your choices become easier.
You stop chasing and start building, because you know who you are, who you wish to become, and you can see the path from here to there.
You’ll also be able to spot the kindred spirits who can help you along your way. Perhaps you and I are kindred spirits?
