Today I had a coaching client share with me that she was struggling to figure out her why, some people refer to it as their life’s purpose. One of the first pieces of homework I give my clients is to spend some quiet time thinking about and documenting their “why”, their underlying reasons for starting a business. She asked me to provide her some questions to help her better discover her why. I came up with the usual; ask yourself – “why do I want to start a business?” “What’s the big picture look like?” Then I thought, I’ll Google it and see what other resources are out there that can help give her some insight into discovering her why. Then I stumbled on Mark Manson and his post “7 Strange Questions That Help You Find Your Life’s Purpose”. It is a must read.
If you are offended by profanity, please don’t click on the link. Mark is nothing if he isn’t real and, well, raw, I think that is one of the things I like most about him..
Small world moment; last week a good friend of mine recommended a book to me, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck – A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life which I ordered but had yet to receive. Guess what? It’s by Mark Manson. I am very much looking forward to reading it and exploring a counterintuitive approach to living a good life, because, I’ll admit, I could use a little more of “not giving a f*ck”.
Read his post, tell me what you think. Share your why.
