Help With Your 'Why' 


"The two most important days of your life

are the day you are born and the day you find out why."

Mark Twain





Welcome to day two of you,

help with your 'Why'.

"The purpose of life is to discover your gift.

The work of life is to develop it.

The meaning of life is to give it away.

Dr. David Viscott  

What is the most important thing in life to you?
Where do you feel like you are helping people?
What do you not get bored with?

Warren Buffett's 5/25 Rule

1. Make a list of the top 25 things you want to do in life.   2. Now do the top 5.   3. Never ever think about the other 20 again.

The things that excite you
are not random.
They are connected with your 'Why'.
In deiterLine your 'Whys' are Callings represented by stars.
Follow your stars.
"It never was about figuring out what
you wanted to be when you grew up.
It was always about embracing
and making the best of
who you already were."
Leonard Joseph, developer of deiterLine
"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."
Friedrich Nietzsche

deiterLine is here to help you.
deiterLine can be aspirational and occupational, individualized or organizational.


'Why' Examples (for starters) to articulate your 'Why'.
To + So = 'Why'

To, (your unique contribution to others) + So, (your positive impact on others) = Your 'Why'

To create a love of reading at an early age so there are no struggling readers in the later years.
Creative Director (Baton Rouge, LA) 
To inform, empower and entertain so we may live in a more artful and enlightened world.
Elon Musk (Fremont, CA)
"Going from payPal, I thought: 'Well, what are some of the other problems that are likely to most
  affect the future of humanity?  Not from the perspective, What's the best way to make money?'"
