Asking “Why?” or “Why did this happen?” is a component of the human experience, as we interact with the world around us. Yet when was the last time some of us stopped and asked ourselves the deeper questions:
- Why did I take this job?
- Why did I marry her/him?
- Or even Why didn’t I do this sooner?
But even more rarely do we ask ourselves why for something we are about to do. Knowing our “why” is critical to changing difficult situations.
