What should a person do if they know their why but can’t pursue it right now?
That’s a great question because life doesn’t always afford us the opportunity to drop what we’re doing and head off to a new challenge. The best way to begin pursuing your why is by building a bridge to it.
A bridge to your why will be a series of intentional steps designed to move you closer and closer to living it. This usually will involve creating some margin in your life. So, if you want to build a bridge to your why, give the following a try.
- Create some margin by evaluating how you use your time. It might be as simple as adjusting your daily routine. Look for a way to set aside 30 minutes to pursue your why.
- Start small by learning more about your why or practicing it. Before you launch fully into your why, you’ll want to make sure it is something you can see yourself doing for a long time.
- Gradually increase the time you allot to your why. Make it your goal to double your daily time allocation within three months. Then double it again three months later. If you started with 30 minutes per day, in six months you’ll be spending two hours per day working on your why.
The Discovery Guide that is part of the new Live Your Why book will walk you through a process that will help you not only determine your why, but also work through some real opportunities to live it.
Your why is more than wishful thinking. It is a way for you to have the best possible life. After all, living a mediocre life isn’t a great plan. Think about it!
