Why Do You Do What You Do?

I was recently interviewed by one of my favorite people, Amy Landino, on her podcast Detail Therapy where I got to think about the age-old question, “why do you do what you do?”. If you’re not familiar with Amy or her show, you want to be. Amy is an award-winning YouTuber, best-selling author, and entrepreneur. Her podcast, Detail Therapy, seeks expert advice on productivity, career, wealth, relationships, mental health, travel, business, branding, and time-management.

As she says, “Get ready for a lot of details, a little therapy and a lot of motivation to help you make your passion possible.”

During the interview, Amy and I talked about how to become a super-connected person. Amy asked me, “Why do you do what you do?” 

My answer was immediate.

“Because it matters.”

This got me thinking. I was happy that I had an answer to that question, but I hadn’t really thought about it before. The answer may vary from person-to-person. Some people do what they do because it makes money, or because they truly enjoy every aspect of it. I hope that my reason — because it matters — is obvious in my delivery.

I don’t just think that being a Connector is a good idea. It’s essential. It’s often the difference between success and failure.

You can listen to my interview with Amy here and decide for yourself.

And tell me – what drives you to do what you do?
