I believe it's important to consider one's motives when embarking on a new endeavor or rising up to a new challenge. I was reminded of this idea the other day while listening to episode 80 the CRM MVP podcast. While discussing reasons why NOT to become an MVP, Gus reminded me how important a strong WHY is in driving the persistent pursuit of a goal.
Without a strong WHY, it's easy to fall into one of two camps. The first is filled with those who lose drive and momentum, never reaching their goal at all. The other has those who attain their goal but are so satisfied in reaching the goal in itself that they abandon all they've worked for.
All that to say... I thought it helpful to consider and record my motivation for starting this blog:
- To give back
- To inspire and encourage
- To challenge and better myself
