There is a simple and fundamental truth that many of us don’t always follow: The why must always precede the what. Meaning — before you do something, you must have a reason as to why you are doing it. Yet many of us are stuck in our habits and routines and often the what ends up preceding the why. We first act and only then do we look for a reason for our actions. We do, and then wonder why we just did that.
In life it is so critical that the function precede the form. First, understand the purpose and meaning behind every action, and only then can you act on it. This defines your entire life — Are you simply a victim of circumstances or are you controlling your life, being proactive and mindful of your actions?
Which brings us to the most important question of all time: Why was the world created? Once we begin to understand the why, we can then begin to understand the what – what is expected of us, what is our purpose here and what can we do about it?
