“I believe that fulfillment is a right, not a luxury. A vast majority of people do not feel fulfilled by the work they do. They may like their jobs, but they don't love their jobs. We’ve made it our mission to help build a world in which the vast majority of people wake up every single morning inspired to go to work and return home at the end of each day fulfilled by the work that they do.
We've learned that fulfillment, in large part, comes from feeling a part of something bigger than ourselves ... from having a good reason to go to work ... beyond our need to just make money, or provide for our families. From having a purpose for what we do ... from knowing why we do what we do. When we have a sense of why we do what we do, we are better able to make decisions and steer our careers in a way that contribute directly to that purpose, cause, or belief. The result is, we feel like we belong ... we have a reason for what we do. In other words, we feel fulfilled.
This course is designed to help you discover your WHY. At the end of the course, you should be able to articulate your WHY, and have an understanding of the first steps you'll need to take to really begin living it.
The reason to discover our why is that it serves as a compass ... it gives us a single focus to point us is the right direction is the overarching driving force that guides everything we do.
With your WHY in hand, you can use it as a filter ... through which to make important decisions ... decisions that will affect how you manage your career. Having a clear sense why we do what we do, helps us stay inspired and, as importantly, helps us inspire those around us. And, at the end of the day, that's really the point of all this. Success is not an individual sport ... it's a team sport
The way to find fulfillment is to find the people we can trust ... the people who we know can help us. Knowing WHY we do what we do significantly enhances our ability to attract the people who believe what we believe.
I'm often asked if it's possible for an individual to have more than one why. People often feel that they have one WHY at home and a different WHY at work. The reality is, each person only has one why. Having more than one why is like two captains on the ship. Which one would you listen to?
A clear understanding of WHY we do what we do gives us the clarity we need to find the jobs, companies, communities, and partnerships that allow us to be at our natural best and feel fulfilled by the things that we do.When we have clarity of WHY, and are disciplined about HOW we do things, and are consistent in WHAT we do ... when all those three pieces are in balance, we know exactly what we should be doing. In total, those three pieces make us who we are. And when we know who we are, that feels really really good.
Though all three parts of the golden circle are equally important, this course is designed to help people discover the part that is most difficult to put into words ... the piece that's often missing ... knowing why we do what we do.”
