Find Your ‘Why’

It’s More Than a Paycheck

provoking book and one that really hit home for me in my quest to more clearly articulate and communicate our mission here at Spada Law Group. Sinek believes that we should start with why we do something, then progress out into “how” we do it, and then finally to “what” we do. By following this path, we will be able to live a more inspired professional life and inspire others to follow us in our quest to accomplish worthwhile goals. The “why” is our passion; it’s what gets us out of bed in the morning. It’s more than the paycheck. that were caused by someone else’s negligence. That is what we do. How we do it is by leveraging our team’s past experience as trial lawyers and adjusters for the large insurance companies that we now routinely do battle against. We give our client’s a true insider’s edge. But why do we do it? On some level, I always knew why I chose this area of law to focus on, but I never sat down to fully flush out my reasons for why I do what I do until recently. Some might reply to this why inquiry with a matter of fact. “Because I need the money to support myself and my family.” I get that, loud and clear, but a paycheck is the result of what you do, not the why . If you do something only for a paycheck, there’s almost certainly not going to be any real passion in your work. I believe everyone, regardless of economic or social status, is entitled to be treated fairly At Spada Law Group, we help injured people receive compensation for injuries

I can’t tell you how many times I have been in a social situation where someone has asked me, “So, what do you do for a living?” It’s such a common question to ask when meeting someone for the first time, and many of us never give it a second thought. Anyone who knows me well won’t be surprised to learn I have given it a second — maybe even a third — thought. Why do we ask this question so early in our social interactions? Why is this one of our first questions? Why do we care? Do we subconsciously treat people differently based on their answer? I certainly hope not, but I suspect that we might. I think a great follow- up question should be why do you do what you do? I am currently reading “Start With Why” by Simon Sinek. This book explores this question and the life-changing power behind “finding our why.” It is a very thought- “The ‘why’ is our passion; it’s what gets us out of bed in the morning.”

in the eyes of the law. I believe that large wealthy corporations should enjoy no legal advantage over an individual because of their deep pockets. I believe each fight in our justice system MUST be a fair fight and we make sure that it is! This is my why , and this why is the reason I started Spada Law Group. As I think back on my career, that has always been my why , I just never put it into words or spent much time thinking about it. In fact, the several years at the beginning of my career when I worked defending insurance companies, my why wasn’t aligned with my true passion, and I was professionally and personally unsatisfied. If you are lucky enough to be doing something that promotes your why , it’s not just work; it’s a passion. I pray all my current and former clients reading this can find and live their why . -Len Spada
