Show Notes

1432 days ago I started a little routine:

I begin every day by asking myself five essential questions.

Answering these five questions creates clarity and vision for my day, before I engage with the daily chaos of my work and life, before I step into action.

I actually write down the answers to these five questions, but as I've now done this for almost four years in a row, there's one thing I discovered:

It's not always the same questions that matter. The questions that are the most meaningful to me change over time. My life changed, I went through different phases in my life, and some of the questions that were really helpful for me at one point started to become useless. There was no point in asking me those same questions over and over again.

And a few weeks ago I noticed that the questions that seemed really meaningful at the beginning of the year now seemed useless. They're no longer relevant to me.

So I sat down and started brainstorming questions that would be more impactful to answer during the COVID-19 crisis.

Here's what I came up with:

Now I haven't settled on the five questions I'll ask myself daily moving forward yet. But I'd love to hear your thoughts!

What do you think are valuable questions we should ask ourselves right now?
