Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action by Simon Sinek – "This book is about finding your purpose and leading your life through it. Sinek talks about the differences between what we do, how we do it, and, most importantly, why we do it. While mostly written from a business perspective, the book highlights how purpose can be attributed to nearly everything in our lives. The why tells us the reason you have for doing something and the compelling result you're going after.
For example, Branch's purpose might be to create incredible office furniture solutions by relentlessly seeking efficient and effective processes. On a personal side, I found that using my purpose - to be a champion for the best ideas by creating an environment for them to thrive in – helps me a lot in professional scenarios where we're trying to work through potential solutions. By asking questions, challenging assumptions, and thinking outside of the box, I'm able to bring my purpose to life for the teams I work on."
