The quality of your life comes from the quality of your questions.
It is true that as a child, what we are curious about is everything. We ask many questions and frankly may have driven our parents up the wall. But as children, the questions are important. It determines what we learn and how it shapes our values.
Now that we’re adult. It doesn’t mean we stop being curious. In fact, we should be all the more curious as our questions impact how we learn, grow, make a profit and design our life.
If you think its too late for you. No it’s not too late. You can be childlike curious again. You too can have the right questions to propel you to dream again.
There are 6 days left before the end of the year (at the time of writing)
1) What would you do in 2019 if you have all the resources in the world?
2) What would you do in 2019 if all you could do is win?
3) What would you do in 2019 if you give yourself full permission?
Find the one common idea in your answers.
That could well be your call or dream in 2019.
What is it? Is it compelling? Is it too small? Is it big and frightening?
Whatever it is, then for the remaining few days, ask if its truly what you want.
The question to ask in Day 4, 5 and 6 until the new year is “Why do you want to do that?”
It’s a simple why question but a very important one.
Here’s what I want you to do. For every time you answer that question, ask “why” again. The why is to to the answer to the last question. Keep doing it until something happens in your heart. If the why touches your heart, the meaning of that dream becomes powerful.
Your answer: So that …..
Q6 .. Q7 … etc etc. You can the point!
At the end of this exercise, not only do you have a call or a dream in 2019, you’ll have the right motivation (or the why) to do it.
I hope this exercise helps you start what is to be the most meaningful year in your life. The point is not for perfection, is for you to start.
I want to wish you the best to design your year and to dream again in 2019.
