Know Your Why by Michael Jr.
“When you know your WHY your WHAT becomes more impactful because you’re walking towards or in your PURPOSE.” – Michael Jr.
After watching this and reading this book I am allowing the content to inspire me to connect to my own WHY and to help students find their own WHY and drive all learning back to their PURPOSE. This is what makes learning real, relevant for students.
