This is the new framework of Naveen Jain, a billionaire philanthropist and entrepreneur. If you’re looking to do something new in business, in a project, or toward a cause it’s important to understand how effective you can be at solving the problem. Before committing and obsessing over this new endeavor you need to make sure it’s worth your time and effort. Naveen Jain encourages you to ask 3 simple questions: Why this? Why now? Why me?
Ask “Why this?” to understand if it will actually drive impact and change. “Ask Why now?” to evaluate if new technologies or circumstances will allow this problem to be solved in a new way. And ask “Why me?” to hone in your skillset and if you are uniquely positioned to tackle the problem in the right way.
