From the Author

Where is your treasure?

At a crossroads in his life, Kent Burns went in search of his treasure. The result? After fifteen years as an accountant, within sixty days, he made a life-changing decision to leave accounting and corporate America behind. He left a six-figure salary and took a 100 percent commission recruiting job that guaranteed him ZERO income. Within four years, he was the number one individual producer worldwide at the largest recruiting fi rm in the world. How did he do it?

His treasure hunt led him to answer a simple three-word question: "What'sYour Why?"

The answer has changed his life forever.

What about you?

Has life ceased to be fulfilling?

Do you feel trapped in your current business environment?

Do you see apathy when you look at those you lead?

Do you aspire to drive your organization to increasing levels of excellence?

Understanding your Why will reveal the core factors that motivate you. Understanding your Why

will lead you on a path toward a more meaningful life. It will also help you better understand

those who work in your business. It will allow you to lead them to places they have never been.

They will, in turn, take your business to places it has never been.

So where is your treasure? If you’ve never been on a treasure hunt, perhaps now is your time.

- Kent Burns 2006

Format: Paperback
I bought this to help myself and it has changed the way I look at my life, my family, friends and my co-workers. I manage a small group of people with lots of drive but we lack focus and direction. I ask the 3 major questions from this book and my people really got into this project.

We are planning some team building events and I feel like the dynamic of this mindset is really starting to take hold and we know each but other not just on a surface level now. I hope the results are what I have read about in this book, I feel really inspired by the inital results and can not wait to see how it unfolds!

Great read, easy, quick and Kent has simplified something very complex aspect of being human!

I picked up this book and found it very interesting and helpful to keep "integrity" in my life -- that is to be sure what I am doing fulfills my deepest desire. Kent's methods for finding out your deepest reasons for why you do what you do are very simple and really work! I highly recommend reading this book and working the exercises at every stage in your life, if not once a year, as it truly makes you more effective as it helps you understand and make adjustments in your goals, your career and your life. Awesome and easy to read book.

This book was wonderful. Finding the True answer to a question is when you no longer answer the question with WHY?

Format: Paperback
"What's your Why?" addresses a pivotal moment in every life. We get limited opportunities where we actually stop and examine what lies beneath the surface of our lives. Most days expire without any such examination. Picking this book up is one of those moments, and it is an uncluttered guide to asking yourself the kinds of questions that force you to be honest with yourself about who you are, the choices you make, and the desires of your heart. You can't very well lead people to be their best if you can't ask and answer these most meaningful questions of yourself.
