I believe there is a much deeper meaning to the why question in the lives we live. We all get up in the morning and go to do what we do. How many of us know why we are doing it? We all do our jobs and money is the result of it. That’s not the reason why we do it. If you are not sure why you are doing what you do, you got to take some time out and answer to yourself, why?
I am not qualified enough to talk about the philosophy of life but from what I believe in, you can live up to a much higher potential and eventually succeed if you believe in what you are doing. If you believe in building great homes for people to live in, design buildings. If you believe in managing people’s money so that they can have a better retirement, be an asset manager. If you believe in doing innovative research using cutting-edge technology and state-of-the-art techniques, be a part of a great market research company.
Don’t do something because the race is on to work for the biggest bank or hottest technology firm. It is never too late to learn something new to fulfill your passion. Life to too short to do something that you don’t believe in. Every few days, ask why you are doing what you do. Make sure you are excited enough to go to work in the morning. The question you need to answer is not what you do, it’s why you do it.
