Thought about Career Choosing

An interesting study recently came out and I do not think this is a new observation: "About 80% of college students change their major at least once. On average, college students change their major three times over the course of their college career."
Being one of those who changed their major exactly three times I can relate to this statistic.  Reading this thought and along with sitting in on high school junior SEOPs, (who 90% do not know what they want to do) I have recently come to a question.  What is more important, finding out what you want to do in life or finding out why you want to do that particular thing in life?  I feel that it is more important to search and come to the conclusion of why you want to do something instead of what you want to do.  I think that if you have that foundation of "why you want to do that"  it can save years and time off of your college journey.....just a thought.
