The Why

The Why

The core of what you are doing and how you are doing it. Knowing the why is the best step to start.

Note for myself: As an individual, I need to know the core values that I uphold as well as the life goal that I want to reach. It's important to introspect and ask why I am doing what I am doing. Knowing it will give me more direction to go on and live the life that I will be living.

The intricacies of process and systems. It's an important phase of the Golden Circle. The WHY will never be executed without the details of the How. Usually people who are good with WHY need a person who is good on the How.

The output or the product. The visible part and the one which has the features on it. This may seem easy but is a crucial part of the Golden Circle. Without the WHAT, the why and the how will be useless.

This is not included in the book, but I think this is common sense when you got the idea behind the Start with Why. The 3 parts of the Golden Circle should be well aligned to each other to make it work.

My take on the book of Simon Sinek. Why, how and what is not the only things that matter, it's the alignment of these three.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
