The Importance of Why

January 2, 2013

I hope your New Year is getting off to a great start. Today is the first day back in the office for me and trying to get back into the flow of things."Start With Why"

In an earlier post, I mentioned reading the book Start with Why. Great book and very important to me. It made me begin to think about  why I do what I do – including writing this blog. Ultimately, I am about bringing glory to God and being a part of seeing more and more Christ-centered communities develop and impact and change this world.

My more specific “why” is to challenge the status quo within the leadership ranks of our churches, ministries, non-profits and other Christ-centered organizations and to strengthen those leaders so that they are better able to effect change within their communities, beginning with themselves and then their organizations and then into the communities they impact.

We can make a difference. It seems right now that the “doom and gloom” mindset is the current fad, but we are a people of hope. It seems to me that right now is one of the greatest times to be on this earth. We have tremendous opportunities to make a difference – it is a time of excitement and outstanding opportunity. Together, let’s move ahead with hope and challenge and change the status quo.

So, what is your “Why”? What is it that drives you to do what you do?
