Why Do You Do What You Do | Linda Deir -author, speaker, transition coach, trainer

“Why do you do what you do? The next time you get the urge to ask someone what they do just ask them why instead.

The “what” doesn’t matter, but the “why” is who they are at the soul-level. You may find many people who, when you ask them, why do you do what you do, respond that it’s because they need to make money.

After you turn 52 years old, why you do what you do will become a higher priority. And, service to others will be at the heart of it.

Even if people do what they do very well, it doesn’t mean they should be doing it. For example, the person who decided to become a doctor because his/her father and grandfather were doctors and all their brothers and sisters are doctors. They didn’t want to be a physician, maybe they wanted to be an artist. They are doing what was expected of them as opposed to following their passion. Even if they are a good doctor, without passion, a sense of purpose for what they do, they will never be a great doctor.

Making money becomes the motivation for their life and it doesn’t matter what they do to get it. It’s difficult to respect or admire these types of people.

People can’t relate to or even appreciate what you do until they know why you do it. “The Why” comes from your soul – it’s the driving force that brought you here into this lifetime. It’s your purpose and mission in life and carries deep meaning for you.”


  • The next time you meet someone, don’t ask them what they do, ask them “Why do you do what you do?”

  • You meet more and more people who say they are unhappy in their jobs, but nobody has ever gotten them to think about why.
  • Ask yourself before you do something, “Am I doing it for others or just for myself?” … “Am I living my purpose, my passion, or am I just running in place?”  

How It Works: So if why you do something is more important than what you do, why are people always so concerned with “what” it is that you do? It could be that they just associate a dollar amount to everything that they do. A fulfilling future does not come from what you acquire because of what you do, it is who you become from why you do it. So ask yourself, why do you do what you do? Are you becoming a person you will respect and admire? ~ Linda Deir
