Questions to ask yourself… for a meaningful life
“Always the beautiful answer who asks a more beautiful question.” – e. e. cummings
I’ve been thinking about how our questions define who we are today, and who we will become.
At a conference last week, I attended a session focused on questions. Not scientific questions or the questions we ask others in clinical practice – the focus was on questions that we ask ourselves. This inspired me to think about some of the big questions I should be asking.
Here are three of my top questions for 2015-16:
- What do I want more of in my life?
- How can I better contribute?
- Where do I need to work harder, and where can I scale it back?
To paraphrase Voltaire:
“Judge a person by their questions rather than by their answers”.
