Well I'm home now. Sitting in my cozy little apartment drinking an egg nog latte from Starbucks. It's Sunday morning and for the first time all year I have nowhere to go and nothing that I have to do. It's an interesting feeling. One I both love and hate. Because it's in these vacant moments that I'm forced to revist this question of Why.
Those of you who heard me speak this year know how passionate I am about encouraging people to ask themselves the Why questions because I've learned that if I don't know why I'm doing what I'm doing I'll spend my whole life spinning my tires trying to figure out what to do or how to do it.
It's in this why question that I'm beginning to find my purpose and it's this purpose that motivates me when I don't feel like doing what I'm doing.
I've flown over 100,000 miles this year and most of it has been alone. If I didn't remind myself often of "Why" I'd be tired, burned out, and incredibly lonely.
So hopefully you'll have some downtime this winter and I want to encourage you to think about "Why you came to this party." Because it is a party and it's incredibly fun and freeing and if you feel bogged down or tired then find the answer to that "why" question and it will energize and motivate you and remind you of why you're doing what you're doing.
Think about your friends and think about your family because it's in other people that we find our purpose.
