Why does having a defined Personal Driving Force matter?
If you were in the woods, would you want a compass?
Your Personal Driving Force is your life compass. It tells you where your sun rises and sets, how to find your way home or forward into the glorious unknown. It is a compact, compelling way of knowing your core self and what drives you at your best. Sometimes it's followed by a manifesto or series of impact statements or "hows" but at its essence, it is a declaration to yourself of your essential reason for being and doing in the world.
