  1. Hi Shelby! I first read about Why-Statements in your “Fast-Paced Productivity” course in the Fox Den and it has given me so much to think about!! After days, I finally came up with a set of three very personal statements that often make me feel stronger and motivated to power on and do my things (currently writing my master’s thesis). I wrote a little post detailing my personal Why-Statements on my blog. Thank you so much for this inspiration!!
