From time to time, it’s good to sit back and ask yourself a few questions. Here’s a starting point.
Are you happy? Are you doing something you enjoy?
A good way to look at is: how much time do you spend on the good things?
Who are the good people in your life? Do you spend enough time with them?
Do you need to realign any choices? Do something differently?
What’s changing? What would you like to stay the same?
Simple solution: keep what’s working, change what isn’t.
What are you doing for others?
As Martin Luther King said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is this: what are you doing for others?” Remember the persistent question.
Knowing what to do next is critical. It could even be a superpower!
How is your routine? Do you have the right balance of structure and spontaneity?
Planning will help, not hinder you. Even if it’s not the end of the year right now, consider an Annual Review—or something else.
What are you working toward over time? What is your legacy project?
We want something we can create that takes effort and a set of structured steps. We want effort as much as results.
Of course, these aren’t the only questions. Feel free to add your own.
