Ask Why

Why are you doing what you’re doing? What do you want to accomplish? What is the win? Why are you moving forward if you can’t answer those questions?

There’s nothing more inefficient than doing something more efficiently that shouldn’t be done at all.

You are limited. Time. Skill. Attention. Momentum. Money. All limited. But within your limits, you can choose to move forward with intention and vision. 

Alternately, you can choose to waste your already limited life and work. That’s the thing about stewardship—the principle is relevant at every stage, every limit. It’s entirely in your hands how you steward the resources entrusted to you, whether they be limited or abundant.

Ask why. Always. Or wake up ten years from now when it’s too late to answer.
