Why am I doing this?
It’s a valid question to ask yearly, monthly and even daily.
More than ever, I see how important the WHY is in every aspect of my life.
Why am I working here?
Why did I get married?
Why do I follow Christ?
Why ask why?
Because the minute I no longer have a reason for the why is the moment that I get stuck in the what.
What isn’t nearly as interesting as why.
What do you do for a living?
What do you guys do for fun?
What church do you go to?
The what can never sustain me long-term. The what is short-sighted.
What happens when my job is for a paycheck.
What happens when activities mask real issues in my marriage.
What happens when I’m more concerned with theology than relationships.
Before long I get tired of the what happening. Then I quit.
If I plan on doing something significant with my life, I have to believe in the why.
If I plan on making this marriage last, I have to believe in the why.
If I plan on walking out my faith, I have to believe in the why.
What is a good distraction.
What can I sell on my blog?
What can I do to get more subscribers?
What will happen if I blog inconsistently for a few weeks?
Too much focus on the what distracts me from the why.
I write to encourage.
I write to learn.
I write to glorify God.
I write to connect.
I write to express myself.
If I’m no longer doing it for the why…
WHAT is the point.
Do you ever get stuck in the what?
