Answers. We all love them. A test completed. A problem fixed. A riddle solved. A decision made. Confusion clarified. Resolution. The end.

What about questions? Here are some good questions to ask yourself from time to time.

  • Who am I?
  • What do I value?
  • Why am I here?
  • What gives life meaning … for me?
  • What do I enjoy?
  • What do I want … really?
  • What is frustrating me?
  • What is my best contribution?
  • Where am I heading?
  • What’s important now?
  • What do I do next?
  • What needs to change?
  • Who can help?
  • What is my focus … today?

Maybe we’re better off not rushing too soon to answers before patiently exploring our questions. Why not sit with them for a while? Be willing to live in the ‘in-between’. Pause. Embrace mystery and paradox – the unknown and yet to be revealed. I wonder if we can let go of the anxiety of the unresolved. Marinate. Give it time.

You are changing … and so are the questions … and so are the answers … for you.

What are your questions today?

โ€œThe important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.โ€

  1. Great questions, some of which make me squirm a little.
    As an add to your thoughts, Busyness is a villain faced by so many and then thereโ€™s no time left for contemplation. The sad reality is that when time and money go head to head money often wins. If we can learn to value time more effectively then we can find the space to sit with questions.

    1. Great comment, Andee. It is so easy to be driven by the clock (the speed of life) that we rarely check the compass (the direction of our lives)! And yes, some of the questions can be quite uncomfortable ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hi Mark,

    Very happy to read your blog. Trusting all is well on your end.

    Breaking cultures and walking away from the formalities can be challenging Appreciate your insight you mentioned we are changing.

    Questioning can bring unpleasantness to whom it may concern especially when is an elder in the family that you donโ€™t agree with.

    Appreciate your mentoring.

    Warm regards,

    1. Thanks Mark. Yes, questioning can be a threat to our comfort and our addiction to certainty! Hope you and the family are well ๐Ÿ™‚
