Ask yourself: why am I doing what I am doing?

"In a world where we all have too many paths to choose from, we sometimes choose the path that has the most urgency (extrinsic motivation) rather than the path that is the most meaningful (intrinsic motivation)."

It is quite easy to get caught by urgency – what we're expected to do, what others want us to do, what is calling our attention. 

It's quite a bit harder to really decide what it is that is our goals to do, what we truly value and what brings.  

Sometimes we need to challenge our spontaneous and intuitive choices and see where they really come from and maybe ask ourselves the simple question – why am I doing this?
