People don't buy what you do, they buy why you do it — Simon Sinek
There was a point in my frustration that I said out loud, “Why the heck am I doing this?”. Even in my moment of frustration I didn't quite understand the profoundness of that question. I took a break and stumbled upon Simon Sinek's TED Talk about leadership. I was blown away, actually I took the rest of the day off to just think about my “Why”.
