Know the why!
So, what? So, why? So, who? So, where? So, when? All these questions…
“Why” is like a destination. What I mean is, when you know the “why” it is easier to do the task. When you know the destination, it is easier to select the route to get there. Global Positioning System (GPS) is a God’s point of view. If you know where you are, and where you are going, it is easier to map out a quick route. If your GPS is sophisticated it can even factor in other traffic.
Where is the destination, though, right? So, why is above where in priority. What is the purpose? That ties in nicely with “why”. Perhaps the question of what comes first (after why). Perhaps the better order of questions is: Why, Where, What, Who, and then When. Whatever order you choose, if the Why is first, the rest can happen.
I would argue that the journey will not start without knowing the “Why”.
If not you, then who?
If not now, then when?
If not that, then what?
If not there, then where?
If not because, then why?
Is there a real reason for this play with words?
