The Power of Why

If you listen to many business gurus, or if you haven taken any online courses for growing a business, you have probably heard the command, “Know Your Why.”

There are many reasons why knowing the purpose behind everything that drives you in business and and life but Simon Sinek, in his TED talk,  explains the importance of “the why” in a succinct and powerful way. So, if you haven’t seen this video yet, watch it now. I promise you, it will be some of the best 18 minutes you have ever spent.

 

What Does it Mean to be Articulate?

I absolutely love this Ted Talk by Jamila Lyiscott. In her talk, Lyiscott unpacks “the three distinct flavors of English” she speaks depending with whom she is with.

I love that she challenges what it means to be articulate because, ultimately, there is no right or wrong way to speak well. I also love that she challenges us to open our minds to the ways “other” groups use language.

What do you think of the video? On this blog, I offer tips for conventional and business grammar; however, there is a time and place to break those rules. In our culture, certain ways of doing things is acceptable. In different cultures, other ways of doing things are acceptable. It doesn’t make one way “right” or better than the other way. Thoughts?
