Why

The "Why" question implies going deeper. Asked repeatedly, it's a drilling technique. A way to peel layers of certainty until we reach the core of our own uncertainty.

Few people are brave enough to go deeper until it feels uncomfortable. Even painful. But I'm convinced that's the place where paramount life transformations begin. The root of all that's meaningful to our deepest self.

Sip that double espresso shot tomorrow morning, take a piece of paper and a pencil, and start peeling off those layers of certainty. The moment you exhaust what's obvious, drill a bit deeper. Who knows what may come out of the depths.
