I attended two different speaking events this week and both speakers talked about “the big why.” Why do we do what we do?
Being a serial entrepreneur, I’m driven by the challenge of creating something from nothing, and the reward of standing back and appreciating the result. But that’s not my big why.
Pondering this question, at first I thought my big why as to was the talented and under-appreciated from corporate boredom. In other words, to assemble an amazing team to do amazing things. But that’s more of a mission, not the big why.
Peeling back the onion a little more, I remembered one of my favorite Steve Jobs quotes: “We’re here to put a dent in the universe. Otherwise why else even be here?”
This is my big why and the big why for our company. What you see of OnlineStir today is just the tip of the iceberg! There is a lot more to come!
Do you know what your big why is? I’d love to hear it!
And speaking of amazing team members, I’d like you all to meet Sokchhan Oum, our new Chief Web Developer. He has years of great experience and is enjoying his life outside big-corp. To learn more about Sok, check out his bio.
Let’s make a dent in the Universe!
Tell us what you think.
