Who are you?  This question is one we may have asked ourselves in order to find our purpose and our goal.

 I listened to a TED talk recently and answered five questions.

TED talk here is only 10 minutes long: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVsXO9brK7M

Here are the questions I answered:

1.     Who you are?

David Alan Binder

2.     What you do?

Write

3.     Who you do it for?

Children

4.     What those people want or need?

To find a way to deal with problems

5.     What did they change or transform as a result?

Give new ways to dream; Give new ways to think beyond the way they do now; Give new tools for coping

 

These are pretty standards answers for a writer, right?

It is all in the presentation though.

So now when someone asks me, “What do you do?” now rather than say, “I’m a writer.” which does not sound exciting in and of itself. 

I can now answer: I give children new ways to dream. I give children new ways to think beyond the way they do now.  I give children new tools for coping.

How exciting is that?  How wonderful is that?  And now the follow-up question has to be, “How do you do that?”

I write children’s books!
