"We keep asking ourselves the same questions over time. They usually don't change, or only change slightly. Everyone has around 10-15 questions that we constantly try to answer."
So I asked myself: what questions do I ask myself on a daily basis?
I wrote them down and here are my answers:
- How can I feel more at peace and reduce suffering?
- Why do people behave the way they do? Why do I behave the way I do?
- How can I make my life more aligned? How can I have more fun, live with positive emotions and be high energy? How can I do more things in my day to day that energize me?
- How can I help others most? What are their needs and how can I help them reach it? What is "my" gift to the world that will impact millions of people?
- How can I spend more time doing what I love?
- How can an innovation reach more people (scale/impact)?
- What can I remove from my life that doesn't serve me? How can I spend more quality time?
- What organization systems work best for humana/human groups?
- What are the impact of things on things? What do things mean?
- How can I be a better version of myself? Maximize my potential and time on earth?
- How can individual pieces be connected to create the best collective one (systems)?
- Why are things the way they are?
- How can I maximize my lifestyle and not be bound to producing money but value (assets)?
- What is "my" gift to the world that will impact millions of people?
- How should I spend my time? What should I do?
Based on knowing these questions, I realized that it makes total sense for me to make coaching and understanding human behavior a key activity of my life - as it's my true passion.
Fun fact: I found a few notes from 4 years back, and the topics were exactly the same!
Here a note on reducing human suffering...
And here a note on Self-DiSds...
- What questions do I ask myself on a daily basis? Where does my mind puts its focus on and what is it trying to solve?
- Ask your friends: what do I constantly think of?
- And ask your family: as a kid, what did I put my focus on?
Knowing what your mind and heart puts your focus on will help you understand yourself better.
