Find A Why Not – Episode 1

Find A Why Not – Episode 1

More people than we probably realize fall into one of two camps:

  1. Those who have  no idea what one of their Why Nots might be, and
  2. Those who have so many Why Nots that they make no headway on any of them.

To start, let’s try three little tips for finding your Why Not.

Let go of the idea that there is One Grand Why Not.

I spent years searching for the One Big Thing that I was supposed to do with my life. It was only when I opened up to the idea that there may not be just one Earth-Screeching-To-A-Halt thing, but several smaller (yet no less important) Why Nots instead, that things began falling into place for me.

Take a good, hard look at your interests.

What subjects/topics/ideas mentally attract you? What makes you light up when you discuss it with others? Following this path could lead you to a Why Not.

Less thinking, more doing.

If you’re anything like me, you think about so many varied interests that you sometimes mire yourself down in the Thinking and don’t Do the Doing. If this is the case, try focusing on just one Why Not for roughly a week. Begin researching and pursuing it; if you find that it’s just not for you… well, that’s why we have to accept the first point above!

  • I have an AHA! moment last week when I was talking to a girl that told me she didn’t knew what she was going to study at university.
    We started talking about me about to finish accountancy and how I wanted to study Language instead. I’m still planning on studying Language at university after this stuff with accountancy it’s done.
    I realized while talking to this girl that my call it’s not in the numbers but with the people. I love to read and write, that it’s my passion and work wise I’ve realized that working in Human Resources at the food company I worked for last year was something that I enjoy and have a blast doing. I did have some little fights with my boss but it was normal and eventually I learned to deal with it instead of getting all worked up.
    I like to work with people, listen to people, give advice to people, sometimes I even get too hang up on other people problems and make it my purpose to help them in any way I can. And I always have the dream of being a writer, so… I can do those things… It doesn’t matter what my parents say or how hard it is, I know it’s what I enjoy the most… I get all excited and start talking fast, make hand gestures and it’s amazing how I can change when it comes to help others and books 😀

    I’ve just stumbled upon your blog and YouTube channel on a bit of a bullet journal/planner blog hop. I’m now officially in love with midori style notebooks and DIYFish on Etsy! Lol. The WYWN series has come at a perfect time for me. Just emerging from the fog of back to back family bereavements I’m starting to look at new pathways and what mark I want to leave on the world. So looking forward to enjoying this journey with you.
