Asking yourself the important questions

I once heard (I think from Tony Robbins ... :) that the mind is like a computer designed to answer questions. As we all know, computers are only as useful as what the user does with them. You can solve the world's problems with them but most people use them to play games or watch porn.

I pride myself on occasionally being a "meta" thinker (someone who thinks about thinking). So here's a "meta" question -- what are the best kinds of questions to ask? Well, here's one that inspired me to write this post -- How Will History Remember You? [h/t:]

I highly recommend reading that article because the author is asking some pretty significant questions. We should all be asking ourselves these kinds of questions, otherwise we're just blowing our state-of-the-art brilliant hardware on a game of solitaire.

I also highly recommend this article: A Hopi Elder Speaks

It asks the following useful questions:
  • Where are you living?
  • What are you doing?
  • What are your relationships?
  • Are you in right relation?
  • Where is your water?
Keep on asking yourself good questions.  And if you need help answering them, there's always God ...
