This was an INCREDIBLE book. I totally GET why I love the people and companies I love... THEY LIVE THEIR "WHY"!!! This was an awesome book for me to read as I start my biz
Powerful, perspective shifting lessons here. Highly recommended. Simon provides excellent tools for introspection - the golden circle - and proves how having a solid clear mission statement is the key to driving success.
For many years I've struggled to explain to myself or anyone else what drives me. I've had different profressions and in each I carved my own little niche. I was a trainer and then I became a coach and personal trainer but more often than not I didn't quite fit in. When I heard Simon Sinek describe his why it hit me. It gave me permission not to "fit in" but to follow my feeling and build from there. Above all that this book came at a time that a partner and I were looking to start a mission to develop our vision. There are countless nuggets throughout this book and I would recommend it to anyone whether they were in business for themselves or working for someone. Thank you for starting with Why Mr. Sinek.
It's a new way to engage how you think about your industry. I'm fairly newly to the workforce and this book helped me understand why I do the things I do. I don't work in the software industry because I'm in love with software, I work in software because I enjoy helping people solve problems and I'm coincidentally good with computers. Simon Sinek is passionate about helping others discover their 'Why?'.
Since Simon Sinek is the author AND the narrator, so you get to hear his emphasis and voice inflection and really understand how he intended his message to be interpreted.
To this day, when I see people behave a certain way or ask a certain question, I kind of cock my head and wonder what their driver is and why they live their life and do their work the way that they do.
I say this book spoiled me because I haven't heard another narrator that is so passionate about his book.
This book just made sense! We all get stuck wanting to determine the how and the what. But it will all be pointless until you discover the why!!
It may at first may sound simple to follow ur why you do things but in reality the way it is explained and with the examples makes the concept more deep seated in the brain making it a must to have a vision and mission for yourself and your business.
