DeiterLine's Frequently Asked Questions

What is deiterLine?

What is deiterLine?


deiterLine is an empowerment app to help you not to quit on yourself, your dreams and aspirations. deiterLine starts with your 'Why', but uniquely helps to make your 'Why or 'Why's actionable. Also, deiterLine is a transformational paradigm shift in thinking —from encumbering and obligating 'What and When,' to empowering and motivating 'Why and How.' There is more about this on the 'Why' of deiterLine. The minimalism of the deiterLine app by nature helps you stay collected, simplified and focused, very powerful clarity. Often when people lose motivation, they have simply lost clarity. deiterLine's focus is on clarity to help you not quit.




Why does deiterLine exist?


deiterLine exists because 84% of the world resists Innovators, Visionaries and Creatives, the 2.5% of the world. The 'Why' of deiterLineis to cheer you, the 2.5%,on to success. Civilization advances. Suffering is lessened. Einstein is credited with saying, "Intellectuals solve problems; geniuses prevent them."




What is the Diffusion of Innovation?


For the purposes of deiterLine, The Diffusion of Innovation, developed by Everett M. Rogers, is a bell curve depicting the drivers and resistors of social change ( innovation diffusion ). You can learn more about the Diffusion of Innovation by reading the works of Everett M. Rogers' fifth edition of the Diffusion of Innovation.




How do I know if I am using deiterLine correctly?


Your deiterLine experience is unique to you. deiterLine's major premise is that you are perfect as you are. deiterLine is not an app to change you. deiter Line subscribes to the words of Carl Jung. "The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are." Your Callings are your Callings and your Initiatives are your Initiatives, the journey that is unique to you. Some caveates: deite rLine is not a to-do list app. There may be a tendency for people to make it so. deiter Line is not a "should" app. Meaning you should do this or do that. deiter Line is not a "Goal Setting" app. While you will set Initiatives ( actions and ventures ) they eminate from your 'Why' which comes from within you. Purpose will get you out of bed. deiterLine is Calm, Powerful Clarity — the best motivation.




Isn't deiterLine just another goal app?


deiterLine's foundation of 'Why and How' is more motivational than traditional goal setting. 'Why's' come from within you, your essence, ethos and purpose — freeing and motivating. So many goals are motivated by external stimuli feeling like obligations, encumbering.













Your 'Why'

What is your 'Why'?


Your 'Why' is your purpose, your single organizing idea. While we say single, you can have many 'Whys': Occupational or Aspirational. There is help on the Help with your 'Why' page of the deiter Line website.




How do you find your 'Why'?


There is help for you on the Help with your 'Why' page of the deiterLine website. Finding your why is not a quest for what you will do when you grow up, but the acceptance of the essence and ethos of who you always were. The things that excite you are not random. They are connected with your purpose. Follow the things that excite you. However, asking youself what problems of the world would like to solve and prevent is certainly a find place to start. Here is some thoughts from Friedrich Nietzsche: "In such a highly developed humanity as the present one each man by nature has access to many talents. Everyone possesses inborn talent, but few possess the degree of …acquired toughness, endurance and energy to actually become a talent, that is to say, to become what they are." This is why deiterLine exists, to help you become who you already are.




How do you state your 'Why'?


One suggestion is to us the To + So = your 'Why' equation. To: is your positive contribution and So: is your possitive impact on others. Example: Calling : Creative Director — Why: To inform and entertain so we may live in a more enlightened, artful world... Calling: Kindergarten Teacher — Why: To instill a love of reading at an early age so there are more life-time learners... There is help on the Help with your 'Why' page of the deiter Line website.
