This quote by Simon Sinek has recently been showing up for me again and again and I want to talk a little bit about why I think this simple action is so important. If you have seen the video posted below you know that Simon is aiming this speech towards big businesses and corporations but I truly believe that these same principles apply to everyone no matter if you are trying to be a leader or not. Starting with why is valuable to create a better version of yourself today than yesterday, and tomorrow a better version than today.
There are several different aspects that feed into your overall quality of life, things like family, work, friends, health, fitness, spirituality, and more. When I look at my life and how I want my quality of life to be for years into the future I think of a few things. I want to be able to do what I am doing today 40-50-60 years from now. This means surfing, swimming, diving, running, ultimate frisbee, backpacking, hiking, and exploring the world using my body. I also want to be able to live free on chronic disease for as long as I live. When I look at what single aspect of my life will be most important in making that happen I think HEALTH. Health still has many different layers under it but overall health is extremely important to me. You might not feel the same way and that’s okay. You might be someone who decides that career is the most important thing in your life, or someone else might say that family is the most important thing in their life. This is the starting point to creating the most value for YOURSELF, no matter what that factor is, as long as you know WHY. I want to share my why with all of you and how I go about the process so that you can create your own why and start the journey on the road to a better you.
