Important Questions To Ask Yourself

Import Questions To Ask Yourself

This is is part of my live-learning series! I will be updating this post as I continue through my journey. I apologize for any grammatical errors or incoherent thoughts. This is a practice to help me share things that are valuable without falling apart from the pressure of perfection. 

I am writing this at the end of quarter 3, 2021 and the beginning of quarter 4. It’s weird to think of years in quarters. It seems to build through the process of being an entrepreneur and doing taxes and reports. 

Quarters somehow coordinate with seasons and create a nice rhythm of optimization and reflection. 

So, today, on a rainy Sunday in Toronto, I am doing some reflection on important questions to ask yourself. 

Yesterday, while journeying, I had this thought of what are the questions that I need to be asking myself? What are the questions I am too scared to ask myself? It was a bit of a breakthrough moment. 

If I am consciously or subconsciously too afraid to ask myself these questions, these are blockers in my life that I will not be able to overcome. 

I am sharing a list of self-generated questions for myself that I hope will be helpful for you as you ask about important questions to ask yourself. 

I will also share some resources I gathered in this journey with valuable questions and prompts that helped me generate my own questions.

As always, thank you for visiting and reading. I appreciate it a lot. If this resonates with you, or if you have a question to add that has been helpful for you, please feel encouraged to send me a message.
