You hear it time and time again these days. What is your “Why?”
When I hear that, I usually end up like a deer in headlights, because I can’t wrap my head around anything that seems important enough to be a “Why.” Meh.
What does it mean?
It means, why do you do what you do? What motivates you to keep going? What inspires you?
Let’s face it. Work can be mundane. I’ve been full-time in voice over for over 15 years. It’s the same grind, day in and day out. There are some really incredible benefts to what I do, too. I have unlimited earning potential, a flexible schedule, and I work on some really interesting projects!
But, I am also the marketing department, the finance department, and the human resources department. It’s not all fun voice work all the time! Sometimes I lack motivation or inspiration, especially since I’ve been doing this for so long.
This past week, my husband and I took a little vacation to visit friends in the mountains of Tennessee. We always love going there, and we dream of moving somewhere in the mountains one day. That day is definitely sooner than later since retirement age is getting closer (not that I’ll ever retire… but my husband will, and, well, I’m a planner). We had a chance to visit a few different areas of Tennessee on this trip, and they were absolutely gorgeous. One in particular is the perfect mix of rural, rolling hills with mountain views, coupled with quaint nearby towns with live music on weekends and old brick buildings with interesting little shops and cool restaurants.
Without question, it’s my why. I am definitely inspired to work even harder to make our retirement (LOL my semi-retirement!) dream come true.
