Why I Blog….

Pronounced: [hwahy, wahy]
Meaning: for what? for what reason, cause, or purpose?

Why do we roll out of bed in the morning? Why does our business endure? Why are we the way we are? Nature vs nurture, Pastafarianism – “The Flying Spaghetti Monster” vs intelligent design, entitlement programs vs boot strapping it; all these dogmas, a term that which goes back to between 1560 and 1600, make up your why. Your why is your purpose, your cause, it’s your beliefs that inspires you to do what you do. When you understand your why, when you consider, perform and connect with others starting with your why, you’ll inspire others.

As a technologist, a renaissance man or woman, an employee, or the leader of a team, you’ll want to understand your why. Most people start with what they do in the organization, then they tell about how they do it, but rarely do we get to why we do it. Determining the why; outwardly proclaims the passion in your work. It is those few people who start with why that have the charisma to inspire those around them.

In my blog, as I try to help mentor others with thoughts about Program Management at its highest level, enterprise architecture, the concept of the “cloud’ and how it’s changing; I hope to share my personal “why”.
