I owe you guys a note, and I don’t have inspiring original thoughts at the moment so I’m going to share a couple from Taylor Pearson, a smart guy I follow, who always has interesting things to say.
This week he shared this list of questions to ponder at the end of the year (pretend you’re Chinese).
He says, “Here are the ones I consistently find to be the most useful. I tend to journal about these for at least a few minutes each and find it very useful.”
1. What can I be the best in the world at in 5 years?
2. What would you do tomorrow if you knew you couldn’t fail?
3. What opportunities are in my inbox or calendar right now?
4. 3 years from now where will I have to be in order to be satisfied with my progress?
5. Am I working with the smartest people I know in a space I am excited about?
6. What advice do you think your 80-yr-old self would give you? What would my Dad tell me to do?
7. Is there anything I want to do but feel unqualified to do?
He also shared an article I think is worth passing along. I was just brainstorming ideas for my podcast, I Always Wanted To, and thought it was apropos.
Top Five Regrets of the Dying by Susie Steiner
“Most people had not honoured even a half of their dreams and had to die knowing that it was due to choices they had made, or not made. Health brings a freedom very few realise, until they no longer have it”
Pearson reads voraciously, and has intriguing notions about the future. I believe him that blockchain will be commonplace very soon but for the life of me I can’t follow it. Maybe you can. Check him out.
