I’ve bought a book called Q&A a day. It’s a 5-year journal with one question a day to be answered each year. It’s good because it makes you think about your life at the moment and reflect on things.
I know I’m a bit late but I decided to select 10 questions from November that might be useful to give you insights about yourself and what you could change or improve. They will make you think about what you’re happy with and what you need to do to achieve more happiness. I plan to post 10 questions at the end of each month.
So here are 10 questions to make you think:
- What’s your biggest expense right now?
Since we were talking about money in the last post (10 ways money can buy happiness), this question can help you think if you’re spending your money on something that’s important and worth it. Could you spend less money on that?
- What should remain as-is?
Be aware of what is good in your life right now. What if it changed? Take the time to think about how to keep it the same and how to accept and deal with it if it ends up changing.
- Where do you find pleasure?
Pleasure is not happiness but it can bring good times. Can you spare some time for your own pleasure? I’m sure you deserve it.
- What do you always avoid?
It’s important to think about why you avoid it and what consequences this might have in your life.
- Is there anything missing in your life?
It might be something possible to achieve. Why is it missing? Do you really need it? If so, what can you do to achieve it?
- What do you have to get done?
Sometimes we postpone things for silly reasons. We’re lazy or it’s hassle but there’s a huge relief in getting something done. So whatever it is, why haven’t you done it yet? Maybe you need more time, maybe you need courage, maybe you need a push.
- Who inspires you?
I think a good thing to focus on here is why this person inspires you and how you can inspire others in the same way.
- What was the last risk you took?
Risks usually teach us something. They might be scary and have a bad outcome or they might bring something amazing. Either way, you learn.
- What five words describe your mood?
Are they good or bad words? If they’re good, appreciate it. If they’re bad, how can you improve your mood?
- What song could be your self-portrait?
Songs can have special meanings. If a song is your self-portrait, it better be a positive portrait.
