Don't Find a Career. Discover the Problem You Want to Solve.
I read or heard some version of this in my recent journeys. It's not exactly Start With Why ; indeed, asking "what problem do you want to solve?" firmly establishes it as a "what," rather than a "how" or "why." But it's a very important "what." It seems to ...
