KEW Episode 76: Why Am I?

You’ve likely pondered the great, ‘Who Am I?’ question. But what about the ‘Why Am I?’

The ‘why’ is a great question no matter the situation.

Of the who, what, when, where, why, and how questions the ‘why’ is probably the most challenging.

Is there a meaning to life?

Do you have a purpose?

Does anything matter?

Hundreds, if not thousands, of philosophers have weighed in on the great question, but I’m not sure there’s any consensus.

In fact, the ‘Why Am I’ is probably one of the most subjective questions one can ask.

So the ‘Why’ I talk a lot about is the ‘Why’ of the ‘Why Am I’.

Or, less ambiguously, the reasoning behind having a ‘Why’.

In short, the ‘Why’ can be a guide that helps remind you of your path.

Kind of like your Values, your ‘Why’ is a reference beacon for when you get lost in the dark.

I hope this Episode encourages you to develop and/or maintain your ‘Why’ as a means of helping you move forward with your personal goals.

This Episode also marks a transition from the ‘What’ questions of Episodes 50-75, to the ‘Why’ of this Episode, and onward to the ‘How’ or ‘How-To’ of the Are vs Should Problem.

I hope you’ll come with me on the journey.
