The Why and How...

A question raised during a lecture :
-Why and How is important to succeed, But which comes first?-

What do you think?
It's Why.. And why so?

The example used-Mulan..
If she were to think of 'How' to save his father from dying in the war, the chances are the dad would have gone to the battle and probably moved on. Instead, with a strong 'Why' i.e. a want to save his father, she went out to war to achieve her 'Why', fearing none of the consequences to herself.

Just like in life, when you falter along the way, a strong 'Why' will bring you back on track but when only a 'How' exist, you'll probably end up lost somewhere along the way, searching for your purpose and probably losing aim. 

So what do you think?
