Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone To Take Action
– by Simon Sinek
This book says the place to start is with why. In reality most of us start with what. What is it we are to do? What is it we want to do? This does not motivate or move. Starting with WHY is how the great leaders have motivated others to take action.
As we apply this to the church, the why we do what we do can form the framework for what it is we do. Do mission statements and vision statements answer the question of what or why? It is worth a consideration when the motivation grows out of the why.
