Asking The Wrong Questions

Nowadays, we tend to consume too much of our energy exerted upon the wrong questions. Whenever we’re feeling lost, we’re promoted to ask ourselves these rational questions:

  • “What do I want?”
  • “Who do I want to become?”
  • “What do I want my life to look like in five years?”
  • “How can I achieve the success I so desperately crave in my field?”

These are not exactly the right questions we should begin with. They assume you know exactly what it is you want, and that’s often not the case. They also tend to be self-centered and thus neglect to factor in the potential impact we will have on others.

The One Question That Should Guide Your Daily Life: "How Do I Want to be Remembered?" — OMAR ITANI

omaritani.com

“How do I want to be remembered?”

It’s a question with three core benefits:

  1. It tells you what you stand for (what your core personal values are).
  2. It shows you how you want to show up in your daily life.
  3. It roots you in the present.

Once you’re clear on how you want to be remembered, all you have to do is start acting in that way, right now.
