Questions to Ask
Most of us go through
our lives in a rush. As a result many important things happen by chance.
We spend days and weeks worrying over small problems (such as which car
to buy) but never find time to ponder big questions (how do I really want to
spend the rest of my life?).
We never have time to stop and think about
who we are, what we do or where our lives are heading.
So take a little
time today to answer these questions.
You may find that in doing so you
learn a bit more about yourself - and a little more about who you are and where
1. Take away your family, your job, your home and your
money. What is left?
2. What in your life gives you the most stress and
the most grief? What makes you miserable? What can you do to have less of that
in your life?
3. What gives you the most pleasure? What can you do to get
more of it?
4. Which individuals do you most admire? Why? How could you
change your life to match their ideals?
5. How could you best improve
6. What are the three most important lessons you have learned
in your life? (Imagine you are dying and you want to pass on your greatest
learning. What would you say?)
7. If you could give the world just one
Commandment what would it be? (The Vernon Coleman special for the day is: `Thou
shalt be kind.')
8. If you had all the money you needed what would you do
with any extra money you acquired?
9. If you found out you had exactly
five years to live, in your present state of health, what would you do with your
life? What would you change?
10. If you had 24 hours to live what would
you regret not having done or tried?
When you've finished answering these
questions pass them on to the person you love most.
