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!
