Why do we do the things we do?

Watching this video from www.TED.com where Simon Sinek is talking about the power of “Why” made me think a bit about why do I do what I do. Here are my conclusions.

For me, it would be because of the multiple complexities of my job. I love tackling them and experiencing the positive results as well as learning from the less positive results.

For me, Asset Management is the greatest field of working possible to be in, I have a real passion for it. I am lucky enough to have worked in this field with many great people throughout my career. Learning every step of the way more and more, realizing that there is seldomly only one correct way to go in any given situation. This is where the complexities of Asset Management come into play; there are so many aspects to consider that it is almost impossible that there is always only one correct way to go. The Asset Management world is rarely only White OR Black, we seem to live in constant changing levels of grey. In addition, this is a great place to be if you enjoy constant challenges like me.

So why do I do the things I do is because I love being challenged, and working in Asset Management ensures that I am constantly challenged!

I now challenge you to take a moment out of your time and look at the video from Simon Sinek, after you have watched it think about why you do what you do and hopefully continue to have a great passion for it.

Thank you for reading my blog. I do try to post here regularly, however I am also very lucky to have a lot of work to do and a lot to enjoy at home so therefore I have little free time to blog. Thank you for understanding and please leave your comment.

    • Thank you Fred, I am happy you enjoy my post’s as do I yours! I do try to find as much time as I can, however time is a limited resource that I need to prioritise correctly to meet demands that tend to give better ROI than this Blog… unfortunately!

    • Hi Charles,

      Most of my posts discuss my experiences in one way or another, maybe with a bit more neutral lens.

      I post here as much as I can, I am just blessed to have a lot of work ahead of my so the Blogging takes a high number in the priority list.

      Thank you for commenting Charles, keep up the good work and you can also share your experiences.
