I do a lot of work with organizations and individuals around the importance of knowing your Why. When you can boil down the most basic purpose for something you're wanting to do, it helps bring clarity to the Hows that get you to where you want to go. The Hows are negotiable and dynamic. The Why is solid. And it's the Why that inspires us the most. I realized last week that this same principle should be applied to the spiritual life, too.
