What’s Your Haka?

The haka is a traditional war cry, dance, or challenge from the Māori people of New Zealand. It is a posture dance performed by a group, with vigorous movements and stamping of the feet with rhythmically shouted accompaniment. – Wikipedia

The New Zealand rugby team famously performs the haka to challenge opponents before matches. It is said to help the team connect to the culture and history that it plays for, to remind them “why” they play and what they play for.

Do you have rituals in your personal or work life that help keep you motivated? How do you connect to your “why” before you perform?
