When deciding on action and considering our future we often ask ‘what’ questions. ‘What shall I do?’; ‘What will happen?’; ‘What does the future hold?’ Asking these questions we may forget that, with very few exceptions, we can do anything, anything could happen and the future is a mystery. Asking ‘what’ is not very helpful.

What we should be asking instead is ‘why’. Deciding why we are to act in particular way specifies the action and makes ‘how’ a mere technicality.

Don’t ask ‘what’ but ask yourself ‘why’! Work out your reasons and motivation, and the action will present itself.
