What, How, Why?
A colleague, trained as a life coach, introduced this method as a way to re-focus your personal goals.
The WHAT might be a goal: I’m going to learn to fly
The HOW might be the method(s): um.. fluid dynamics?
The WHY might be: I believe I can fly, duh!
Your WHY keeps you persistent, engaged, coming back. Your HOW is all the weird-ass things you’re going to try and try again. And the WHAT is just a promise waiting to be fulfilled.
You’ll need a good WHY* where you’re heading. ;)
In the Rules of Thinking by Richard Templar, in Rule 88, he says “Look for the bigger picture in everything you do”. It can help with acceptance :)
Similarly what is your bigger picture?
*And that kids is the story of why I never learned the guitar.
