ask yourself

1. Who are you? 

What do you do when you do nothing? If you are not your job, your education, your habits, your house, your car, your clothes, your friends, who are you? Who would you be if you were dropped into a strange city to start over with only a month’s wages in your pocket?

2. What do you want? 

What do you desire? Do you still want it when you get it? Are you focused enough to not give up what you want most (long term) for what you want now (heat of the moment)? How stable are your desires? How do you prioritize them?

3. What’s your purpose in this life?

What is your Life Plan? Is there a contribution you want to make? Some talent you wish to develop? A goal, an achievement, a legacy? Do you wish to leave the world a better place for your having lived?

4. How will you maintain yourself? 

How do you plan to stay physically fit? Mentally? Spiritually? Entropy happens! Fail to plan, plan to fail. Ongoing self-maintenance, following a growth strategy is crucial. 

5. What are your unique skills? 

How do you plan to develop them? How will you continue to grow and evolve to stay relevant in a rapidly changing world?

6. Who are your heroes? 

What motivates you? Who do you want to be like? Why? How did they become the person you admire? What are your triggers?

7. What connections are important to you?

What constitutes a meaningful relationship to you? What are your expectations? What will you give, what do you want? What are your coping strategies to deal with the inevitable problems?
