I’ll keep asking this question.
It’s been almost a month since I posted my answers to the first five questions of this series of fifty. But a curious thing happened since pondering these questions…
I am more present
I am more into my wife
I enjoy a healthier diet
I stopped drinking coffee
I am working on creating a career change
SO… does it make a difference that I am answering these questions? Hell yes.
I invite you to do the same. Let’s keep the conversation going.
6) If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?
Thinking about this question causes me to ponder who I really am. Several things come to mind.
• I would be playing music.
• I’d teach others about healthy diet / cooking / lifestyle.
• Help others with their small businesses by collaborating, sharing my experiences. Not consulting, the type of help that they really need. Sit down and show how different things need to be completed and share inexpensive resources that can help them with things they don’t need to be doing. Real help – roll up your sleeves and get in there.
7) Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?
I definitely settle for what I am doing currently. It sucks to realize this and is a blessing at the same time.
8) If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
• I’d be a beach bumming, music playing, inclusive, loving, open person to my friends and family.
• I’d find way to make amends with those I have had relationship fractures or breaks with that I care about even if the source of the fracture was not my doing.
• I’d forgive… I’d ask for forgiveness
• I’d help others.
• I’d make every effort to help make others feel good about themselves
• I’d play- I am talking treehouses, swings, bikes, skates, whatever. I’d play
• I’d have more sex
• I’d cry, laugh and smile more
• I’d travel as much as humanly possible and see as much as I could.
• I’d meet new people and invite them over for grill-outs and drinks.
• I’d let go…
9) To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?
If we are talking on a scale of 1-10, I have to say I am kicking around a 4. I have done a poor job of controlling the course of my life. That is changing as I write answers to these questions…
10) Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
I am more worried about doing things right. It took a while to think about this. I don’t know if I am necessarily doing the right things. Again- change is coming. This question is making me question and analyze what the right things are. Ideally, I am doing the right things, AND doing them right.
