Two simple questions
To create motivation that lasts, we focus on 2 important questions. First, we ask a big question to orient our life toward greater purpose - what's my sentence? In one sentence we state what lasting impression we want to leave on the world. Then, we keep asking a small question for day-to-day motivation - was I better today than yesterday?
Our academy sentence is:
"The academy ensured that ALL students succeeded at university, or a real alternative, thrived in a top job and had a great life."
