"Find your why."
It’s a common piece of advice: Don’t focus on what or how, not at first. At first, find your why. Because without a solid why, without a reason for embarking on your new path, you won’t be motivated to make the change.
But finding your why takes space and time you might not have yet.
And besides, you already know that you want to do the thing. Does it really matter why you want to do the thing if the desire is there?
Eventually, sure. But it isn’t necessary for taking the first step.
Take the first step.
Then take the second.
Then the third.
These steps compose your initial what. Want to become a minimalist? Don’t worry about why—not yet. Just focus on the fact that you want to, that what, and turn that what into action.
