Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action

by Simon Sinek Start with Why. Penguin Publishing Group.

Why do you do what you do?

Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their success over and over?

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.

Sections of the Book and My Notes

PART 1 A WORLD THAT DOESN’T START WITH WHY

1 ASSUME YOU KNOW

Manipulation vs. Inspiration (p. 16)

PART 2 AN ALTERNATIVE PERSPECTIVE

8 START WITH WHY, BUT KNOW HOW

Energy Excites. Charisma Inspires. (p. 133)

This is important. It’s like the hot fire of romance at the beginning of a relationship that converts into warm embers of deeper love that becomes the basis of more mature love.
