Recently I completed Dr. Gary Sanchez Know your WhyAssessment. I discovered that my why is Contribute what motivates me is I want to be part of a greater cause - something that is bigger than myself.I don’t necessarily want to be the face of the cause, but I want to contribute to it in a meaningful way.
