My Deep Daily Questions
I ask myself difficult questions. And I think everybody should do the same.
To find your own deep questions, follow your discomfort. Repeatedly ask yourself until the questions lose their bite.
- Listen to your body! Are you tired or unmotivated? How can you realign your inspiration and values? Who are you becoming?
- Only do core/creative work! Is there anything you can automate? Is there anything you can delegate?
- Are you reaching for the stars? Did you postpone all non-urgent and non-important tasks?
- What am I avoiding? How can I break down my tasks into “mindless” ones?
- Where are am I fighting Nature? Where are am I embracing Nature?
