“The wise man doesn’t give the right answers, he poses the right questions.” – Claude Levi-Strauss
What are the big questions in your life? In many ways, the level of success you will achieve is directly related to the number and the size of the questions you ask yourself and then choose to answer.
I do recommend you setup a living Questions List to track these questions. Some examples:
- How can I double my current income in the next 24 months?
- What are 10 ways I can be a better parent?
- Why am I here, on Earth, at this point in history?
- What are the main causes of global warming?
The next step is to review this list once every seven days. As new questions arise, add them to the list. When you have a satisfactory answer, you may cross this query off the list if you like. Some questions require some major action on your part for a real solution to manifest. If this is the case, consider re-phrasing the question so it becomes a project or goal to pursue.
By systematically recording and tracking your major questions, you will discover that you find solutions much faster than if you only thought about these issues as they came-up in your life or just popped into your head.
