job title boxes labelled with graffiti asking but why

We’re taught to value titles.

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” we hear as kids.

Doctor, Firefighter, or Writer are the stereotypical titles. And then there’s Businessman, Chef, Electrician, or Engineer.

I say…. who cares what people call you?

What are you doing to help people? Which problems are you solving? Can you define your life’s purpose? (Pssst, our career guides can help).

Those are the questions that create value. And fulfillment!

Find your why.

So if someone asks you, “what do you do?,” sculpt a creative sentence, and dismiss labels.

Something like, “I help people find a home they love.” Or, “I build software that connects people across the world.” Another, “I teach people to live healthier lives.”

These statement are infused with meaning, mission, and momentum. They clarify your daily action.

Whether you are just starting your career, seeking a new one, or wanting more satisfaction, begin to ask yourself: “who am I helping?”

Because when you have your “why,” the rest falls into place!

“He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.”

Friedrich Nietzsche
