Hi! Today I’m just going to read a little bit from a blog I usually read by Cal Newport. What he says is very important and it’s really appropriate, I think, for Star Wars Day.
Hi! I’m going to recommend a YouTube video, actually, another YouTube video. It’s called “Start with Why” by Simon Sinek. Simon Sinek’s TED talk, “Start with Why”. (Here’s another link to his talk.)
So why am I making this video? I am making it because I cannot stress it enough. I can’t stress enough how important it is to understand your own values and why you do what you do. I will only add that by understanding the why, you may end up going into directions you never expected to go and you might be afraid to go there, but it actually might be a good time to rethink that if you’re really, really into it and you have a goal in mind. It is that desire that will keep you engaged and interested enough to keep doing what you’re doing and doing it well. I hope that makes sense.
Anyway, I hope that I’ve helped you in some small way by pointing you to this YouTube video, “Start with Why” by Simon Sinek. Thanks. And I’ll talk to you later.
PS: Check the end of the video for a blooper moment!
Hi, everyone! Today, I’m going to talk a little bit about the power of habit, because having the habit of creating things is the secret to succeeding with creating them.
