Know Your Why

I’ve heard the statement know your Why three times in the last two weeks. It’s a powerful statement.

Knowing your why helps when you do a life spot check, helps you know when to say yes and no, keeps you from just going through life on autopilot. 

My why: to touch lives through the power of story. Whether that’s my books or in writing instruction or helping my kids capture the stories of their community, my why is seen in my work.

Knowing my why helped me start writing again once I had time to breathe, and it helps me focus on critiques of my students’ work. 

Know your why. It makes a difference.
