W.W.W. stands for

“Why am I doing this?”

“Why now?”

“What else could I be doing?”

W.W.W is an important acronym to help you prioritize your actions, energy, and time. Anytime you consider taking an action, ask yourself these three questions to help you get off autopilot and stop responding reflexively to impulses and requests that don’t serve your highest purpose. The first question addresses purpose, the second timing and third forces you to think about opportunity cost. Given limited resources (Time? Energy? Mindspace?), every yes is a no to something else; always be aware of what you are saying no to before you say yes.
